The Inbetweeners co-creator Damon Beesley has confirmed plans for a second UK film.

Beesley revealed that a follow-up to 2011's The Inbetweeners Movie was in its early stages and would see Joe Thomas, James Buckley, Simon Bird and Blake Harrison return for a sequel.

"I don't want to give too much away at this stage but we have been developing an idea for a sequel," he told The Sun.

Co-creator Iain Morris confirmed Beesley's comment on Twitter.

When asked if the movie plans were true, he said: "Yes, but it's far from signed and like Damon said we want to make sure we have a good enough story to tell."

Beesley added that he hoped "to make sure that we can do justice to a follow-up".

The first film, which saw the group head off to the Greek island of Crete on a summer holiday to celebrate leaving school, made £45 million at the box office, despite a production budget of just £3.5 million.

That made it the most successful British comedy film to date.

The film's four stars will could make £2.5 million each after getting up to £500,000 in total from the first instalment.

An American version of the show has just launched on MTV and there are reports of a US film to follow.
