Edgar Wright’s The World’s End To Get Steven Price Score, Dance Sequence And… Zombies?

Steven Price‘s score and composition work for the movies include Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity, which can’t come out soon enough, as well as Attack the Block and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, both of which are Edgar Wright-related – not to mention, rather nice sounding indeed.

Now, that relationship is set to continue, with Film Music Reporter naming Price as the man charged with setting music to Wright’s upcoming The World’s End, the last part of the Blood and Ice Cream trilogy.

Music, it almost goes without saying, was very important to both of the previous Blood and Ice Cream films, but there might be a new twist to how it’s being used in this third instalment.

 

“Everyone else” includes the three young women I mentioned in my previous post on the film, those potential mermaids and/or unorthodox love interests, at least one of them with a career record in song and dance.

And, as well as those girls, this lady.

A dancing what, sorry?

She goes on.

So, could there be a closing of the circle here? Are there going to be zombies in The World’s End as well as Shaun of the Dead? School Disco suggests the possibility of this being a scene set in the character’s younger days – potentially at the same time and in the same world as Shaun? Nah. They wouldn’t have two apocalypses-in-progress, would they?

Ms. Cornfield could be referring to a Hallowe’en costume, I suppose. Or some other kind of zombie – somebody out of their mind on dance floor candy. But I’m stretching.

Either way, it doesn’t matter too much. This must surely be one of the most promising films of 2013, and whatever Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and co. are cooking up deserves to be eagerly awaited.
