The 'Love Actually' and 'Shaun of the Dead' actor had concerns about how the big screen adaptation of the beloved sitcom will be received.
Veteran British actor Bill Nighy is set to star in next year’s movie adaptation of legendary comedy ‘Dad’s Army’, but he’s apparently worried that fans of the original series will hate the resulting film.
Nighy was interviewed by British newspaper The Times and revealed that he had been plagued with worries during the filming of his part, which began in Yorkshire in October last year. He plays the part of Sergeant Arthur Wilson, the role originally occupied by John Le Mesurier, alongside Toby Jones’s portrayal of Captain Mainwaring.

Fans of the TV series and 2011 first movie probably won't mind that the filmmakers never bother to develop these characters at all. At least the four lead actors have plenty of charm to paper over the thinly written script, making the most of even the most simpleminded gags while playing up the traits that have kept fans coming back since the TV show debuted in 2008. The actors are now between 27 and 30, but the idiots they play are resolutely stuck in their teens.
Having finally survived high school, Jay (James Buckley) takes a gap year in Australia while his pal Will (Simon Bird) has a lonely first year at university. Even a visit from pals Simon and Neil (Joe Thomas and Blake Harrison) fails to cheer Will up, but a suggestion that they drain their student loans and head Down Under to visit Jay is more like it. Jay has painted a picture of sex-crazed party mayhem, but when they land in Sydney the reality is somewhat different. So when hot babe Katie (Emily Berrington) invites Will to come to Byron Bay with her gang of middle-class hippies, he drags his mates along. But these four guys fail to fit into the backpacking lifestyle, and instead head to the Outback to find Jay's ex.
The film opens in a nicely cinematic style, with slick spoofs of both Harry Potter and Scarface before settling into the usual groove: setting up each sequence as a possibility for sex before everything unravels into humiliating chaos. The problem is that this repetitive cycle is all set-up but almost never any pay-off. A waterslide sequence is a hilarious exception, building a queasy sense of suspense before landing a series of riotously revolting punchlines. But more often the characters are left staring into space before muttering, "OK then," before the screen fades to black as if it's time for an ad break.

Scroll for pictures from the glitzy premiere
The stars were out in force for ‘The Inbetweeners 2’ world premiere last night in London’s West End. The tale of four misfits trying to find their way as young men in the modern world continues with a trip to Australia.
In the sequel, following on from the boys’ trip to Malia, Simon, Will and Neil decide to join Jay on his gap year in Australia, while Simon struggles to dump his overbearing girlfriend.

Turns out 'The Inbetweeners 2' is a fine way to end the boys' story.
Fans of The Inbetweeners have known for some time that the sequel to 2012's box-office busting big screen movie would probably be Simon Bird, James Buckley, Joe Thomas and Blake Harrison's last outing as Will, Jay, Simon and Neil. The boys - whom we first met at a secondary school somewhere in the Home Counties - have only aged about 3 years over an 8 year period of shooting the TV show and the movies, and they've convincingly argued to leave the quartet's story at that throughout just about every publicity interview for their new movie.
The boys are back - down under!
So it's fitting that The Inbetweeners 2 - out in cinemas today (August 6, 2014) - should be everything that drew some 3.7 million viewers to its season 3 finale in 2010.

Watch the eerie trailer below
Shameless and Silk actor Maxine Peake combines with Blake Harrison, known for his goofy character Neil on The Inbetweeners, in ‘Keeping Rosy’ – a tense, low-fi British thriller centred on Charlotte, a career-obsessed workaholic whose work and personal life takes multiple turns for the worst in a matter of hours.
Maxine Peake stars in 'Keeping Rosy'
Having chosen a career in advertising over any semblance of a meaningful personal life, Peake’s character’s life is constantly a fragile balance. ‘Keeping Rosy’ is a film about the tense balance between work and life, focussing on the intense pressure for people to succeed in an increasingly competitive, cut-throat marketplace.

Charlotte is a proud career woman living in finely placed, plush city apartment with very defined ambitions and the confidence to achieve them. Unfortunately, the media agency she works for sees her future a little differently, and she is cut off from the scheme she's worked so hard for. Angrily, she comes home and bumps into her cleaner with whom she has a violent argument. The row escalates, and Charlotte fatally injures her by accident. Panic-stricken, she dumps the body just in time for the arrival of her sister Sarah and her niece. Remembering the CCTV, she attempts to get hold of the taped evidence and meets security official Roger, who watches the tapes for himself and witnesses everything. However, this is a man with very few scruples and he has no intention of going to the police with his findings. Instead, he invites himself into her life, shamelessly seduces Sarah, and sets out to make Charlotte's life a living hell.
Continue: Keeping Rosy Trailer
Sleek and tightly constructed, this low-key British horror thriller worms its way under the skin to put us in what feels like an impossible situation. We may not be able to identify with everything the central character does, or each decision she makes, but we squirm at the thought of being in her shoes. And by keeping everything so understated and suggestive, filmmaker Steve Reeves manages to deliver several terrific jolts.
In London, corporate executive Charlotte (Maxine Peake) is having a seriously terrible day. After giving up her personal life for her job, she's bypassed for a big promotion that goes instead to Tom (Sam Hoare), whose wife (Tori Hart) has just had the baby Charlotte has always longed for. After drowning her frustration in alcohol, she goes home to find her surly cleaner Maya (Elisa Lasowski) smoking in her flat and trying to steal a bottle of champagne. But their confrontation takes a dark turn when Charlotte accidentally kills Maya. In a panic, she hides the body. But this only begins a series of major decisions Charlotte must make. She reaches out to her sister Sarah (Christine Bottomley) for help, but things begin to feel a lot more precarious when the smiley Roger (Blake Harrison) turns up.
The title refers to one of Charlotte's most important choices, which is something better discovered in the context of the story. Indeed, the entire movie seems to exist behind Peake's expressive eyes and stony face. She gives Charlotte an uncanny inner life, thinking through the ramifications of every startling twist as if it was part of a major corporate project. It's easy to see why she is so good at her job, although her intelligence also makes some of what she does feel rather contrived. But Peake's considerable screen presence makes it clear that Charlotte is the kind of woman who doesn't accept help from anyone and would rather do even the dirtiest work herself.

...And they haven't even put the best jokes in the trailer!
The trailer has finally been released for the long-awaited sequel to 2011's The Inbetweeners Movie, The Inbetweeners 2. Jay, Simon, Neil and Will are back for another round of lewd, rude and cringe-worthy hijinks...but this time they're Down Under.
The Sequel Sees The Guys Applying Their Very Unique Girl-Charming Skills Down Under.
Yes indeed, after the last movie was set mainly in Malia where the guys ventured for their summer holiday, the sequel will be based in Australia as the boys take a gap year before embracing their lives as adults. "You know why they call it Down Under?" says Jay. "'Cause that's where your face spends most of the time."

The four musketeers are back once again after their eventful (and mostly deeply embarrassing) post-A Level escapades in Malia. While we saw them apparently bag themselves the girls of their dreams, unsurprisingly it doesn't look like the romance has lasted and now they are back to their single selves - well, apart from Simon. When Simon, Will and Neil decide to join Jay on his gap year in sunny Australia, Simon struggles to dump his overbearing and uber needy girlfriend. He's still as awkward as ever, Neil's still stupid, Jay is still a total liar and Will's mum is still fit, but the boys have a brand new car now dubbed the 'Mobile Virgin Conversion Unit'. Armed with sunscreen, condoms and bags of charm, these lads are on one last mission to climb the social hierarchy ladder.
'The Inbetweeners 2' follows on from the pre-university lads' holiday of 'The Inbetweeners Movie'; an award winning big screen spin-off of the popular Channel 4 comedy series. With Ben Palmer having directed the first movie, creators of the TV series Damon Beesley and Iain Morris have taken on the role this time while also writing the script. The movie is scheduled to hit the UK and Ireland on August 6th 2014.
'The Inbetweeners Movie 2' will see the fab four going down under.
The cast of The Inbetweeners will be headed to Australia to film the next feature-length chapter in the crude and hilarious exploits of the four friends, Neil, Simon, Jay and Will. The 2011 movie was so well received that the comedy's creators have set their sights on another movie, this time set Down Under, according to Iain Morris and Damon Beesley.
We're Due More Hilarious 'Inbetweeners' Action Next Year.
Producers have confirmed that The Inbetweeners Movie 2 will be shot in Australia this month before the team heads back to the UK in January with a Summer 2014 release date pencilled in, according to distributor EFD, via Digital Spy. There's little confirmed information about the new film's plotline at the moment but the show's creators have revealed where the sequel will be set.
