The Inbetweeners Movie set for US remake

The Inbetweeners Movie will be getting a US remake, according to Deadline , following in the footsteps of the TV show, which has already been translated for US audiences.

The film will not be a direct remake of the English version, and it's unclear whether it will follow on from the American show. Even more confusingly, Paramount have hired Iain Morris to write and direct, having been co-creator of the original series.

As if to muddle matters further, the original UK film will soon be opening in the States, with a new trailer having been released specifically for American audiences. You can take a look at that one, below…

To be honest, we're not too sure how we feel about this one, particularly in the wake of the slightly odd-looking cast signed-up for MTV's Americanised version of the show. However, the presence of Morris on writing duties should ensure that at least some of the potty-mouthed hilarity is retained.

The Inbetweeners Movie (the English one) will open in the US on 7 September. We'll be interested to know whether "clunge" catches on across the pond...
