Edgar Wright's The World's End to Begin Shooting in September
The World’s End, the third and final movie in Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy (also known as the Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy), is set for a September start date. If that trilogy sounds unfamiliar (as the films are connected by different flavors of Cornetto ice cream), you might know its first two films: Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.
Wright returns to direct a script co-written by himself and Pegg. Pegg and Frost again star. Assuming the film is greenlit as expected, it is planned for a spring 2013 release. Check out the plot summary below:
“20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub, The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.”
Wright’s last directorial outing was 2010’s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, while Pegg has appeared in a number of recent films, including the 2009 Star Trek reboot, the most recent Mission Impossible outing, and 2011 alien comedy Paul, which, along with Frost, he co-wrote and co-starred.
