For many educated at boarding schools, the novel turned film Spud, spoke to the heart of childhood pain, joy, camaraderie and early experiences. It also happens to make for very amusing storytelling.
Now, Spud 2: The Madness Continues, is back.
Troye Sivan is back as the lead role with the original Crazy 8 (all his mates) return to the screens. The Crazy 8 are: Tom is Vern, Josh Goddard is Mad Dog, Byron Langley is Simon Brown and Blessing Xaba is Fatty. Of course the comedy legend John Cleese is also back as Guv – the enigmatic, rule breaking cricket coach.
Release is in June.
