The Inbetweeners 2 movie will be the 'death' of Inbetweeners, says director
Director Damon Beesley said second film would be the 'death' of the gang
Friday 01 August 2014
The cast and filmmakers of the hotly anticipated Inbetweeners 2 movie have confirmed that this will be the last time fans will see Will, Simon, Jay and Neil get up to their usual mischief on screen.
Damon Beesley, who co-directed the film with Iain Morris, said there would not be a third movie.
“We don’t want this to be a franchise. We realise this is the death of The Inbetweeners which is sad really.”
The Inbetweeners Movie, which came out in 2011 and is the UK’s most successful comedy film of all time, was originally intended to be the final chapter about the four favourite misfits from the fictional Rudge Park Comprehensive.
“We never thought [The Inbetweeners Movie] would be as successful as it was, so it was a natural end for us all,” said James Buckley, who plays the crude Jay Cartwright.
“Even three years later, there’s still that interest…we kind of ran out of reasons why not to do [a sequel].”
The Inbetweeners 2, which comes out on 6 August, will see the group continue their antics in Australia.
Beesley said that Australia felt like a “natural fit” for the boys.
“It’s always been about friendship…and testing your personality. We just felt like putting them in Australia. It was a good place to put them,” he told a Q&A at the Regent Street Apple Store
Morris said they did consider a stag do theme for the sequel but thought it would be too much like The Hangover, and too early on for the boys to be getting married.
“The situation of The Inbetweeners was always about that sixth form life and how then you can start to expand into your own personality,” he said.
