Do I have to?: Kevin gets set for his movie debut

Harry Enfield's sulky teenagers Kevin and Perry are becoming film stars - and could even find girlfriends in a new 3.75m movie project.

The awkward duo, played by Enfield and Kathy Burke, will head off to Ibiza in Kevin And Perry - The Movie, in search of "true love" - or a desperate rush to lose their virginity.

They also plan to become club DJs in the film, which goes into production next month and will be shot in London and Ibiza.

The script is by Enfield and writing partner Dave Cummings, whose past credits also include The Fast Show.
