Edgar Wright's 'The World's End' Gets Green Light From Universal
It’s a go for a new Edgar Wright comedy.
The British director is currently prepping The World’s End, a comedy about five childhood friends who reunite 20 years after they tried to complete the ultimate pubcrawl.
But as they come to grips with their pasts, they realize the fate of mankind may hang in the balance as they attempt to reach the storied pub, The World’s End.
Wright is currently prepping the film for an October start in the U.K. Nick Frost will star alongside Simon Pegg, who co-wrote the script. Universal will handle international distribution while Focus Features will handle domestic duties.
The film comes after two of Wright’s other films being billed as part of a trilogy, 2004’s Shaun of the Dead and 2007’s Hot Fuzz.
