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.
