'The Inbetweeners' movie is to be based around a ''mental, messy holiday'' the four main characters embark on before they go to university
'The Inbetweeners' movie will be about a "mental, messy holiday".
Joe Thomas - who plays comedic sixth former Simon Cooper - has revealed that some scenes from the upcoming film have already been shot, with the majority of the project starting early next year and following the four pals on a boys' holiday.
He told 'Daybreak' on ITV1: "We're filming in January. That's the plan at the moment. We've done a little bit, but the principle shoot, if I can use that term, is in January.
"It's funny, it's the sort of holiday I did everything in my power to avoid going on when I was in the final year of my exams, but yeah, it's kind of a mental, messy holiday."
Blake Harrison, who plays Neil Sutherland in the E4 show, added: "It's a rite of passage that everyone seems to do, especially in this country, in Britain."
The final episode of the TV series aired on Monday (18.10.10), but a one-off special is being planned as well as the movie based on their final break before university - also consisting of Jay Cartwright (James Buckley) and Will McKenzie (Simon Bird).
Blake explained the character were first created to depict how horrible life as a teenager can be.
He said: "Generally teenage years are quite horrible, I think. The pressure to be popular and get girls or boys. It's horrible. I don't think I'd ever want to go back and be a teenager again, it's quite an uncomfortable part of your life. That's what the writers have done. They've put that uncomfortable feeling into everything those boys do, and it was on the money."
