Pegg And Wright Have Drafted Their Shaun And Fuzz Follow-Up, Plan To Shoot Next Year

Presumably still going under the working title of The World’s End, and definitely still being referred to as the third part of The Three Flavours Trilogy, the next film from co-writer Simon Pegg and writer-director Edgar Wright has been floating on the collective wishlist of movie fandom for some years now.

For the longest time we were promised that they’d be sitting down to write it “soon”, but it seems we’re finally past that stage. Coming Soon have squeezed series co-star Nick Frost for an update, and he’s revealed:

There is a draft out there, which I’ve read, and it’s great, and I think our plan is to crack on and shoot next year. Touch wood. They move and they change but we definitely want to get on with it.

Though he could literally be referring to Pegg and Wright with “they move and they change”, because they do and I’ve seen it with my own two eyes, I believe he’s talking about plans.

Plans that also have to factor in Ant Man, Star Trek 2 and, I’m sure, plenty of other surprises we haven’t even heard a peep of. Yet.

A I recall, all we know about The World’s End so far is that it’s in a specific and identifiable genre, but it’s not a zombie, police or slasher film, and that it deals with the themes of being 40-or so and approaching middle age.

It seems reasonable to assume it’s got something to do with the end of the world – either geographically or temporally. Many are assuming it’s something to do with the apocalypse, though I don’t remember any confirmation of this.

So, in short, we don’t know much. But still, hopes run high. I’m following Frost’s advice and touching wood.
