‘The World’s End’ First Look: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright Reunite On Set
Isn’t it good just to see these guys back together again? Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and director Edgar Wright (‘Shaun of the Dead,’ ‘Hot Fuzz’) are back filming their third movie together – ‘The World’s End‘ – and we’ve got a first look at the highly anticipated movie from the U.K. set.
First, let’s bring you up to speed on ‘The World’s End.’ Directed by Wright, who co-wrote the script with Pegg, this film goes 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 (Pegg), 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.
In these photos – taken on the Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire set – we not only see Pegg and Frost back on set, but also the younger actors playing the younger versions of those actors. The boy with the colored shirt and the glasses is the young Nick Frost, while the black trench-coated lad is the young Simon Pegg. (Sadly, we don’t have the names of these young actors yet.)
The film co-stars Rosamund Pike and Paddy Considine and while it doesn’t have a U.S. release date yet, it’s currently set for August 14th, 2013 release in the U.K.
