However, despite the fact he’s now an ex-Street, Skinner hasn’t stopped making music. According to NME, the MC is now charged with creating the score for the upcoming The Inbetweeners movie.
Skinner will be creating all new original material for the film, which is based on the E4 sitcom of the same name and tells the story of the four main characters as they go on vacation to Crete, GR. IMDB reports the film will hit theaters on August 19th.
