Though it starts shooting in a month, we haven't heard too much about the casting for Edgar Wright's 'The World's End.' Sure, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are in it - it is the supposed final chapter of their Cornetto trilogy - but the trio have often scored some great British actors for their supporting cast. Now they've added a Bond girl.
Comic-Con 2012 just made fans of Edgar Wright's "Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy" very happy with an announcement from Universal Pictures that the final film in the series, 'The World's End' has been greenlit. They've even given us the first official poster for the film, which you can check out below!
Though we've been hearing about the project forever, and marveled at upcoming TNT drama and Frank Darabont period piece 'L.A. Noir's cast, we've yet to see anything official. Not only that, but TNT has yet to announce whether or it'll take the Darabont-helmed show to series as the pilot continues filming, but now new set photos have given us our first look at former 'Walking Dead' star Jon Bernthal, as well as a very famous star guesting in the pilot.
When you're attached to a J.J. Abrams movie, you're automatically sworn to keep quiet on some of the key plot points and characters in order to lure the fans in. But when you're dealing with a sequel as monstrous as 'Star Trek 2,' fans will begin to make up all sorts of rumors, especially one that actor Simon Pegg is tired of answering.
Last we heard from Edgar Wright, he was hired to adapt 'The Night Stalker' for Johnny Depp. But he'd also teased that he and Simon Pegg were writing the third film in their Cornetto Trilogy 'The World's End.' Pegg has been shooting 'Star Trek 2' (but he just wrapped), so it was unknown when the film would be coming. Now we know, they've got a September start date with a planned Spring 2013 release.
The world has been waiting patiently for the next film from director Edgar Wright and actor/writer Simon Pegg. But there comes a time when we're going to stop being so patient. Pegg, off filming 'Star Trek 2' for J.J. Abrams, took a break to update his fans on the status of 'The World's End', their follow-up to 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Hot Fuzz.'
Boy, that Simon Pegg has his hands in a lot of different cookie jars these days. One day he's throwing his voice to one of the most dangerous bounty hunters in the galaxy for 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars,' the next it's back to beaming up for 'Star Trek 2,' so where might the UK funnyman pop up next? Back in time? Well, that's one frontier Pegg has never boldly gone before.
