    Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright Are Almost Finished with the Script for THE WORLD

    Back in January, Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg shared an image of the two “hard at work” on the script for The World’s End, the concluding chapter in the unofficial “Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy” which includes Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Following the success of the latter, Wright, Pegg and Nick Frost got busy with their separate projects (though the break gave us such excellent flicks as Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Star Trek, and Paul). Pegg is currently in the middle of filming J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek sequel, but earlier today he tweeted a lovely image of a completed draft of the script for The World’s End. Hit the jump to check it out.

    Now this image doesn’t mean the script is finished (it’s only a second draft), but Pegg tweeted this little nugget of promise along with the image:

    “I know we took our sweet time but as soon as I get back from outer space, we can finish this thing once and for all”

    The draft is dated February 5th of this year (those crazy Brits have a strange way of writing dates), but it’s definitely exciting to know that Pegg and Wright plan on finishing the script once Pegg returns to Earth. Wright has an Ant-Man movie in development at Marvel, but Frost previously said that the trio hope to film The World’s End sometime this year. Depending on how long Marvel is willing to wait on Ant-Man, it’s entirely possible that production could begin on The World’s End in 2012. This is very good news, as I’m assuming that most fans are as eager as I to see the three reunited on the silver screen once again.

    Nick Frost Chris O’DOWD CUBAN FURY Michael Nyqvist SEAGULL

    From Twitchfilm comes word that Frost and O’Dowd will star in Cuban Fury, featuring Frost as a former teen salsa prodigy who attempts a comeback after a rival (O’Dowd) ruins his career. Jon Brown penned the script, but the picture does not yet have a director. The project is backed by the UK’s Big Talk Productions (Hot Fuzz, Attack the Block).

    Love Frost...and O'Dowd is good too(Pirate Radio) so I'm in...

    Edgar Wright’s THE WORLD’S END Set to Begin Filming This September for Spring 2013 Release; Plot Details Revealed


    Here’s a piece of news that is undeniably off the chain. After years of waiting and months of teasing, director Edgar Wright is set begin filming The World’s End with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost this September. The third entry in the so-called “Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy” that began with the zombie flick Shaun of the Dead and continued with the action-leaning Hot Fuzz has been promised for a long time now, and this past January Wright and Pegg revealed that they were “hard at work” on the film’s script. Pegg recently wrapped J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek sequel, and earlier today tweeted that he’s moving straight into Frank Darabont’s L.A. Noir TV pilot, after which he’ll “be an author again,” followed by a job involving “plasma and gelato.”

    Hit the jump for more, including a plot synopsis for The World’s End.

    Per Deadline, Working Title is teaming with Universal on the project and the plan is to start filming this September for a Spring 2013 release date. The logline is as follows:

    “20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub, The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.”

    It appears that a supernatural/world-ending element is included in the mix, which is very enticing given the talent involved. After the success of Hot Fuzz, Pegg and Frost wrote and starred in the sci-fi comedy Paul while Wright directed the instant cult classic Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Wright has written a script with Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) for Ant-Man, which he’s attached to direct direct, and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has been saying that the project “is closer than its ever been.”

    Many believed that Ant-Man was the untitled Marvel film slated for release in 2014 and that Wright would make the superhero pic his next film, but it appears he’ll be tackling The World’s End first. This is fine by me. I’m elated to have any Edgar Wright project on the horizon (he’s also attached to direct Johnny Depp in The Night Stalker), but the reunion of Wright, Pegg and Frost is icing on the Blood and Ice Cream cake.

    Hooooooooooray.

    Edgar Wright Says He Hopes to Shoot ANT-MAN Next Year

    Fans have been curious about Marvel’s Ant-Man for quite some time. Edgar Wright is attached to direct, and he’s been working on the script for the past few years alongside Attack the Block’s Joe Cornish. The Avengers made an insane amount of money, so all eyes are on what Marvel Studios has coming up. Marvel president Kevin Feige recently revealed that there are two unannounced Marvel projects currently in development, in addition to Iron Man 3, Thor 2, and Captain America 2. With word that Ant-Man was coming along nicely, many were hoping that the superhero pic would be Wright’s next film. However, the director recently set a September start-date for a third film with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost called The World’s End.

    Confirmation that The World’s End is finally happening was fantastic news, but fans were left wondering what that meant for Ant-Man. Wright recently appeared on Empire’s podcast and he talked a bit about fans being impatient regarding Ant-Man and revealed that he hopes to shoot the superhero pic next year. Hit the jump for more.

    Appearing on the Empire Online podcast (via CBR), Wright addressed fan frustration over the long development process for Ant-Man:

    “I get quite superstitious because I don’t feel like anybody — websites and stuff — quite understands how hard long it takes and because the film websites update hourly, it’s like ‘What’s the ****ing hold up? Just make it. Why isn’t it coming out tomorrow?’ But every film that I’ve made has taken like three years. Each one, it’s been three years between movies. I would love for that gap to be shorter, but the truth is there’s — it’s almost like a holding pattern. There are planes in the air and you have to figure out which one is going to land before they all crash.”

    It’s a fair point, and as long as Wright is committed to doing the project at some point, I feel like fans should have faith that he’ll get to it when it’s ready. On that front, Wright has some promising words for a possible 2013 start-date:

    “Yes, things are happening and other things are happening on other things as well. … There’s some interesting plates spinning and I ideally hope we’ll be shooting this year.”
    I look forward to a Wright directed superhero movie and a quirky character like Ant-Man is perfectly suited. I can't imagine this will appeal to the masses but maybe the Avengers tie-in will be enough to help sell a few tix.

    Nick Frost’s Three Year Plan, Cockney Lump, Simon Pegg… But No More Paul | Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    When I spoke to the actor recently, mainly about Snow White and the Huntsman, we also chatted just a little about his future plans, getting started with Lump.

    Cockney Lump is written, I’m tweaking it constantly and we’re just trying to get it out there and see who fancies making a wrestling film. It will be with Big Talk. It’s that thing as well where, as a writer, an actor or whatever else I do, that you have to pick your battles and say “This thing now has a potential for going so let’s just do that now for the next year.” You have to think three years ahead. I’ve got a three year plan in mind. The next three years is full of stuff that I want to do with Big Talk, there’s stuff that me and Simon are going to do together, and I want to direct and produce.

    Sometimes you think “I had this idea twenty years ago but obviously then I had no output for it, but now I’m at Big Talk perhaps somebody will take it seriously.” I’ve been able to trawl through fifteen years of old notebooks and you move it forward from there.

    I don’t think we’ll do a second Paul. We quite fancied doing another one but we were never approached and nobody asked if we’d fancy doing one. Even if we were to come up with a great script it would still be five years away. It did great box office, was number one in five countries.

    …but that’s apparently not enough.
    That sucks. Paul is a fun, sweet little flick.
