Mike Skinner of The Streets writing music for THE INBETWEENERS
I'm super excited about this news - not only am I a big fan of British television (the film in question, THE INBETWEENERS, is a big-screen version of cult British TV comedy The Inbetweeners), but I am also a big The Streets fan. The Streets (Mike Skinner) started as a UK garage rapper with an electronica twist, who became popular in the local clubs, and quickly became both a well-known music producer and artist on the UK charts. He is now writing music for THE INBETWEENERS.
Recently, it's become much more familiar and commonplace for bands and solo artists to make music for big films, such as Daft Punk for TRON or Trent Reznor for THE SOCIAL NETWORK, and especially the upcoming Chemical Brothers score for HANNA, so it's no surprise to see Skinner jumping into a similar project.
The film is based off a British TV comedy called The Inbetweeners, and is from writers Damon Beesley and Iain Morris from Flight of the Conchords. The story follows a group of four teenage friends as they stumble through life tying to get drunk and laid (unsuccessfully). The film will specifically follow their trip on holiday to Malia, Greece, and adds new cast members such as Lydia Rose Bewley, Laura Haddock, Tamla Kari, and Jessica Knappett.
Director Ben Palmer is on board and its set to hit UK cinemas August 19, with no information yet on a U.S. release.
