‘The Inbetweeners’ Team Is Set For Coming-Of-Age Comedy Film ‘The Festival’ | Film News


Several members of the team behind The Inbetweeners series and films are reuniting for a new film called The Festival, a new comedy about a group of students that graduate and decide to go to a music festival. The producers said the movie is a coming-of-age comedy “that finds the gang falling in love with music and mud.”


The film stars The Inbetweeners Joe Thomas, Claudia O’Doherty (Trainwreck) and Hammed Animashaun (Black Mirror). The supporting cast includes Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords), Hannah Tointon (Mr. Selfridge), and Kurt Yaeger (Sons of Anarchy).


The Festival will be made by Fudge Park, the UK production team formed by The Inbetweeners writers and executive producers Iain Morris and Damon Beesley. This is the first film to be greenlit under a four-picture pact Fudge Park has with Film4 and Entertainment Film Distributors, which are co-financing.


The film is to be produced in the UK and set for a summer 2018 release. Entertainmennt Film Distrobutors handled distribution of both Inbetweeners movies and will also distribute The Festival in the UK.


The director will be Iain Morris, while Damon Beesley will executive produce. Keith Akushie and Joe Parham penned the screenplay.


The Inbetweeners Movie and The Inbetweeners 2 were both huge box office successes in the UK, with the latter having the biggest opening weekend of 2014.
