The People Just Do Nothing big screen outing has vacated its August cinema release slot and will arrive in February 2021.
There’s obviously been a fair amount of discussion of late as to blockbuster movies being put back, and an assortment of less expensive films opting to eschew a cinema release altogether in current circumstances, in favour of a video on demand path. However, one movie that’s been overlooked in much of this chat is the film spin-off from the TV show People Just Do Nothing.
Whilst the film take on Catherine Tate’s Nan character has had to be put back to a thus-far unconfirmed new date, the People Just Do Nothing movie remains on the schedules for Friday 28th August. It now finds itself competing against X-Men: The New Mutants, also set for that day.
UPDATE: The film has now definitely changed date. It’ll now be released in UK cinemas on February 5th 2021.
The film doesn’t yet have its official title, but it seems Universal is still looking at a late summer release for it. The movie shot in the UK and Japan before things got locked down. Allan Mustafa, Hugo Chegwin, Asim Chaudhry, Steve Stamp, Dan Sylvester and Lily Brazier all star in the feature.
The official original announcement described the movie’s outline as follows…
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?
More on the film in due course – and perhaps a trailer shortly.
