Dramatically revealed on Twitter earlier today is the first ever sneak peak at script for Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright‘s The World’s End. The film will the third in an almost, sorta, kind of trilogy with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, known as the Blood and Ice Cream series or sometimes the Cornetto trilogy.
What we can surmise from this big reveal is their second draft was finished on February 2nd. I know it’s written 5/2/12, but they’re weird and British and write things backwards. But whatever, the basic and really important thing to take away from this is, it’s happening people. We don’t know when, or how, or with whom but it is happening.
Their brilliant TV show Spaced was a U.K. hit, but most of the U.S. and the rest of the world was first introduced to Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright when their homage to zombie films, Shaun of the Dead, blasted into the nerdosphere. They followed that up with an homage to action films called Hot Fuzz and swore another film would follow. Well, in the four years since Hott Fuz it looks like Wright, Pegg and Frost are finally working on the conclusion to the trilogy, lovingly referred to as either the “Blood and Ice Cream” or “Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy.”
Edgar Wright posted the above image, on Twitter today saying only “Hard at work…”
What is The World’s End about? I have no idea. I don’t think Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg have any idea either, but hey, at least they’re men at work. I would assume though, that with the first two flavors being Horror then Action, the third must be Sci-Fi.
With the exception of The Dark Knight Rises and Avengers, The World’s End has now jumped my list for most anticipated movie.
