Simon Pegg provides update on The World’s End
It will happen, it’s just going to take a while.Now that Edgar Wright is nearly finished with Scott Pilgrim vs The World and Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are wrapping up on Paul, one wonders how long it’ll be before they all get to work on the last on the last film of the Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy. After all, Shaun Of The Dead came out in 2004 and Hot Fuzz in 2007, so it’s been coming for a while. Unfortunately we’re going to have to wait a little longer. When asked about The World’s End at a press junket for Paul yesterday, Pegg said;
“Me and Edgar are going to try and get together and write out the third thing, whether it ends up being called that, I don’t know, we’ll write it as soon as we can basically. Edgar’s now, as we speak, finished his ‘Scott Pilgrim’ promotion in Japan, so he’s going to have some time, and hopefully after ‘Mission Impossible’ I’m going to have some time so we can sit down and get the ball rolling and hopefully turn it over quicker than normal. We’ve written two films together now so this should maybe not take as long as ‘Shaun’ and ‘Hot Fuzz’ did, and of course Nick will be involved from the beginning. It’s just a question of logistics, practicality and timing, but we’re so ready to do it.”
It’s good to know that it’s on their minds anyway. Pegg, Frost and Wright are all involved in other projects right now, so like the man said, it’s just a matter of when they can all get together. Ultimately, if it’s anywhere near as good as Shaun and Hot Fuzz then it’ll be amazing.
