Edgar Wright's Trilogy-Ender The World's End Gets Start Date, Synopsis
Rejoice, Shaun of the Dead/Hot Fuzz faithful! At long last, the eagerly anticipated threequel in Edgar Wright's "Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy" (AKA "The Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy" -- Wright's version of Kieślowski's Colors series) is on its way. Deadline reports that The World's End, to be directed by Wright with collaborators Simon Pegg and Nick Frost starring, is set to begin filming this September with fingers crossed for a spring 2013 release. But wait, there's more! Get a taste of the trio's upcoming shenanigans from the film's synopsis, which promises adventure, friendship, and -- what else? -- pubs.
The only catch: According to the report, Universal "hasn’t yet green lit the film." But Wright and Co. are charging ahead anyway with the fall start anyway! Good luck to 'em. (And good luck holding your breath, Ant-Man-watchers...)
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.
