The first image from “The Inbetweeners Movie 2″, which started filming in Australia this week, has been released.

In addition, Roadshow Films have announced it has secured the Australian distribution rights to the 2014 comedy.

The follow-up to the United Kingdom’s most successful comedy of all time reunites the hapless Jay, Neil, Simon and Will, this time in Australia.

Production started shooting in Queensland on Saturday (December 7) and will be filming across the country until late January when they will return to the UK.

”The Inbetweeners” creators, Iain Morris & Damon Beesley, will be directing the comedy, having once again written the script. Spencer Millman (”The Mighty Boosh”, ”Man Down”) is producing the new film.

”The Inbetweeners Movie” was a huge success locally, grossing over $9.2m. The film spent four weeks at the top of the UK box office charts following three lauded seasons as a cult British TV show.

Roadshow Films will release the sequel in Australian cinemas in August 2014.

Produced by Bwark Productions, a Zodiak Media company, who will co-finance with Channel 4/Film4, Entertainment Film Distributors will distribute the film in the UK.

Having started life on E4, the multi award-winning series went on to enjoy massive success with its debut film, ”The Inbetweeners Movie”, which was fully financed by Channel 4/Film4 and distributed by Roadshow Films in Australia.
