Universal Pictures has announced that Edgar Wright will be directing the final film in his trilogy of comedies with Simon Pegg. The World’s End, co-written with Pegg, follows Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. It will begin filming in October in the U.K. and co-star Nick Frost. Here’s the official plot description:
20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent 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 hometown 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.
This is the official teaser poster for the movie, presumably listing the various pub names. I’m excited, since the two previous films made me enjoy genres I normally avoid, zombie horror and cop action.
