Post-Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, we haven’t heard much of what Edgar Wright has been up to. Sure, he’s hosted a couple of festivals at The New Beverly in Los Angeles, but other than rumors of Ant-Man, nothing. So yesterday on Twitter, Wright laid out what looks to be his next project: The World’s End. For those in the know, that’s the supposed third film in the “Cornetto trilogy” he plans to complete with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.
If one trusts that this picture was taken yesterday, it’s going to be a while before we see it, as Simon Pegg’s Star Trek 2 has just begun shooting. It’s likely that Trek will keep him occupied over the next four to six months, but both men are nothing if not hard workers.
This also raises a number of questions: Will it be shot in England? Seems likely as it’s of a piece. And then when will they be able to get to it? All three are coming off of The Adventures of Tintin, which may not have been a big hit in America, but has made over $300 Million worldwide. Then again, that’s supposed to be directed by Peter Jackson, who’s got his Hobbit films to worry about. And then there’s the script… Still, this is great news.
What do you think the third film in their trilogy will be about?
