New World’s End Promo Profiles Director Edgar Wright

When Spaced landed on Channel 4 in 1999, it made a stars of Simon Pegg, Jessica Hynes, Nick Frost and, remarkably for behind the scenes talent on a sitcom, director Edgar Wright.

When Wright later delivered Shaun of the Dead it was obvious that Britain had a proper, gets-named-in-the-pub, could-be-a-guest-on-a-chatshow director. Though…. having said that… I don’t remember him being on a chatshow, actually. Lost opportunity.

So, okay, we know this chap’s name and he’s got a fanclub of the likes we rarely see in Blighty, but what’s so special about Edgar Wright anyway?

In this video, his collaborators try to give you some idea.
