The stars of cult British TV comedy The Inbetweeners are reuniting for a sequel to their hit 2011 movie. James Buckley, Simon Bird, Blake Harrison and Joe Thomas will reprise their geeky characters for a follow-up which will be shot later this year (13). A statement from creators Iain Morris and Damon Beesley reads, "We couldn't be more excited to be making another Inbetweeners movie. A new chapter in the lives of the Inbetweeners feels like the very least we can do to thank the fans for their phenomenal response to the first movie." The writers downplayed reports suggesting the second film, due in U.K. and Ireland cinemas next August (14), will take place Down Under, insisting, "Australia is just one of the ideas we're kicking around." The Inbetweeners ran for three seasons on U.K. TV before hitting the big screen, and the film version, which was set in Greece, holds the box office record for the most successful opening weekend for a comedy release in Britain.
