After a successful run as a TV show, People Just Do Nothing is becoming a film.

The BBC’s hit comedy series People Just Do Nothing is making its way to the movies. After a five series run on the BBC, filming is now underway on a feature film adaptation, that’s going to be shooting in the UK and Japan.

The title of the film is thus People Just Do Nothing: Big In Japan.

Allan Mustafa, Hugo Chegwin, Asim Chaudhry, Steve Stamp, Dan Sylvester and Lily Brazier are all set to star in the movie. The official announcement declares:

Since the end of their pirate radio station, life has been quiet for the Kurupt FM boys, but everything is about to change. News reaches them that one of their songs has been used on a popular game show in Japan. They’ve made it! Their music is reaching hundreds of thousands of people! It’s finally time for them to enjoy the fame and fortune that they’ve always known they deserved. Chabuddy G steps excitedly back into his management role as Grindah, Beats, Steves and Decoy begin their journey to international stardom… But is Japan really ready for Kurupt FM?

Jack Clough is directing the movie. It’s set to land in cinemas next August.
