People Just Do Nothing: Big In Japan is now filming…
After five series of People Just Do Nothing on the Beeb, it’s time for a movie! It’s been announced that filming has begun on People Just Do Nothing: Big In Japan in the UK and, well, Japan. A cinema release date has been set for August, 2020, and it’s been confirmed that Allan Mustafa, Hugo Chegwin, Asim Chaudhry, Steve Stamp, Dan Sylvester and Lily Brazier will all appear in the feature film.
“Since the end of their pirate radio station, life has been quiet for the Kurupt FM boys, but everything is about to change,” reads a production statement. “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?”
MC Grindah had this to say: “Japan is the most advanced city in the world so it makes perfect sense that they would recognise our lyrical talent. We can’t wait to go over there and completely destroy the music scene. In a good way.”
Chabuddy G added “You know me, I can sell anything mate. Ice to an Eskimo, halal meat to a racist vegan… selling garage music to Japan is water off a ducks beak mate.”
“Kurupt FM is going global and we couldn’t be happier,” said Rose Garnett and Shane Allen from the BBC. “We just hope the world is ready.”
