David Arnold and Michael Price have been hired to score the upcoming British comedy sequel The Inbetweeners 2. The film is written and directed by Iain Morris & Damon Beesley and stars Simon Bird, Joe Thomas, James Buckley and Blake Harrison. The movie follows the four friends Jay, Neil, Simon and Will as they visit Australia. Spencer Millman (The Mighty Boosh) is producing the Bwark, Zodiak Media and Film4 production. Arnold and Price have previously provided additional music for the first movie based on the hit TV series of the same title, which was released in 2011 and turned into the highest grossing British comedy of all time at the local box office. The Inbetweeners 2 is set to be released on August 6, 2014 in the UK. No word yet on a domestic release.
Arnold and Price most recently collaborated on the music for the third season of BBC’s Sherlock. Arnold is also currently working on a stage musical based on the Made in Dagenham feature film, for which he composed the score. The musical is set to premiere this fall at the West End’s Adelphi Theatre.
