Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost Reunite for The World's End
Yes! Color us officially giddy! Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost together again for another genre flick? If you're not happy about this, you don't have a pulse. Then again, if you didn't have a pulse and came shambling our way, we'd have to get some red on us.
According to Deadline, Working Title and Edgar Wright have set a September start date for The World’s End, the last in a trilogy of comedies that started with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Wright, who’ll direct, wrote the script with Simon Pegg. Once again, Pegg stars with Nick Frost. Universal Pictures hasn’t yet greenlit the film but is expected to after the modestly budgeted pair of comedies grossed $108 million worldwide between them. The plan is for The World’s End to reach theaters in spring, 2013.
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.
