British comedy TV series The Inbetweeners is to be given an American makeover for a new movie.
The popular show, starring James Buckley and Simon Bird as a group of awkward teenagers, became a hit film in the U.K. last year (11) and now movie bosses in the U.S. are planning to create an American version.
Iain Morris, co-creator of the U.K. show, has been hired to write and direct a movie inspired by the 2011 original for an American audience. It is believed the film will follow a similar plot to the first film, about four friends taking a post-graduation vacation, but will feature a new cast and different characters.
An American TV version is also planned for this year (12), starring Joey Pollari, Bubba Lewis, Zack Pearlman and Mark L. Young.
The show will debut on MTV in August (12) and the movie is slated for release in September (12), according to Deadline.com.
