The Inbetweeners – The Movie.
LONDON, Thursday 26th August 2010; Bwark Productions have announced that production is underway for The Inbetweeners movie and filming will commence in locations in Greece and the UK next week.
The cast will include stars of the TV show – Simon Bird, Joe Thomas, James Buckley, Blake Harrison and Emily Head.
The hit comedy, which has been described as the British American Pie, delves deep into the psyche of the British teenage boy to discover equal amounts of lust, sick and cheap lager. None of our heroes are exceptional, all are distinctly average. And trying to convince the world they are sophisticated, sexy human beings usually ends in wretched disaster.
The film’s plot revolves around the boys first holiday away together and crucially, without their parents. The four of them decide to go to Malia, a party town for mainly young British tourists on the Greek island of Crete. And if they felt slightly outside of mainstream teenage society in their suburban hometown then that feeling is magnified a thousand times in one of Europe’s hedonistic hotspots.
The film will be directed by Ben Palmer and written and exec produced by Damon Beesley and Iain Morris. Chris Young is the producer for Young Bwark Films.
