Zodiak Rights, which has started worldwide distribution of the sequel to The Inbetweeners Movie, has closed its first deal with Village Roadshow, which will release the film in Australia and New Zealand.

Produced by Zodiak Media company Bwark and co-financed by Film4, the comedy follows the clueless Jay, Neil, Simon and Will, as they go on a mad adventure in Australia.

Shooting of The Inbetweeners Movie 2, written and co-directed by Iain Morris and Damon Beesley, started on 6 December with the original cast members, including Simon Bird (Will), Joe Thomas (Simon), James Buckley (Jay) and Blake Harrison (Neil).

Before becoming a critically acclaimed smash-hit comedy and grossing over $90 million at the box office worldwide, The Inbetweeners started off as a series on channel 4's digital channel E4.

Entertainment Film Distributors will release the film in cinemas across the UK and Ireland in August 2014.
