Paddy Considine Reuniting with Edgar Wright at ‘The World’s End’
British actor Paddy Considine will reunite with his ‘Hot Fuzz’ pals Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost for Wright’s final film in the “Three Colors Cornetto” trilogy, ‘The World’s End.’ Ice cream and violence for everyone!
According to Variety, Paddy Considine will join Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in Edgar Wright’s ‘The World’s End,’ which follows a group of friends nearing their forties who decide to take on a massive pub crawl on one particularly fateful evening.
Considine starred as one of the Andys in ‘Hot Fuzz’ alongside Rafe Spall (whom we reported earlier today is replacing Tobey Maguire in ‘Life of Pi’) and joins a cast that already includes the aforementioned duo Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, as well as the recently announced Rosamund Pike. The actor will play a womanizer and former musician who is now a divorced architect on the verge of turning 40.
‘The World’s End’ follows ‘Hot Fuzz’ and its predecessor, ‘Shaun of the Dead’ in completing the jokingly named “Three Colors Cornetto” trilogy, so named because all of the films feature the classic ice cream treat and violence.
Considine can also be seen in ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’ and Richard Ayoade’s coming of age tale ‘Submarine.’ In addition to his acting skills, Considine made his directing debut recently with ‘Tyrannosaur.’
