For those of you who mourned the end of a fruitful collaboration with the aptly named The World’s End (2013), the final installment of the Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg / Nick Frost Cornetto Trilogy that started with Shaun of the Dead (2004) and Hot Fuzz (2007), you will be glad to know that the end is not quite at hand. While the trilogy is most certainly finished, Pegg announced during an interview with BBC 6 Music that he and Wright have been working on a new project, with a title and everything! And while everyone involved is currently occupied on other jobs, the project in question is in the queue and will eventually happen.
“It will happen. We made three films in ten years and hopefully in the next decade we’ll make another three.” Says Pegg. “I really love working with those guys and I wouldn’t ever not want to work with them. It’s not even a question.” Which is good to hear, because the epic Pegg/Wright/Frost bromance triangle is pretty potent and irresistible. It would be a sad day indeed if the trio were ever finished working together for good – which seems pretty unlikely considering that in the meantime Pegg and Frost have signed up to reprise their Shaun of the Dead roles in an animated Phineas and Ferb Halloween special. Those guys just can’t get enough of each other.
What this Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg project with the mystery title is all about, or if it will spawn another trilogy, or when it might finally begin production, is anyone’s guess for now. Its enough to know that we haven’t seen the last of the magical trio and their fabulous comedic genius. If this new movie is even half the quality of any of their previous collaborations, it will be worth the wait.
