'The Inbetweeners' Writer Denies Sequel Is On The Cards
The Inbetweeners Movie took the summer box office by storm and now fans are calling for a sequel.
The film, which showed the four friends - Will, Simon, Neil and Jay - taking a lads' holiday to Malia in search of sun, sea and, as ever, girls was a massive success, grossing over £20 million at the box office and gaining critical acclaim for its gross-out comedy and crude new slang.
The success of the film means many of its fans are calling for a sequel. And news of this was fuelled by an article in The Mirror, published on Monday, claiming that a follow-up would take place at a wedding and include the stag-do.
The film “insider” cited the massive success of the first film as encouragement to make a second Inbetweeners Movie. With the news quickly spreading to expectant Twitter fans.
However, the film's co-writer Iain Morris has quickly dispelled the rumours, commenting via Twitter: "First I've heard of it. Maybe The Mirror are writing it?"
He added: "Honestly, we haven't even talked about it. It's our first day in today. I've been drunk for a month... Not sure who the 'insider' is."
Inbetweeners actor Blake Harrison, who plays Neil Sutherland in the sitcom and movie, said: "I know nothing about a second Inbetweeners film. I wouldn't believe everything you read... except Star Wars novels... they really happened."
Morris quipped in response: "You're not in it. we've filmed it. An 'insider' from 'the studio' told me."
