The third film in the Ice Cream Trilogy is finally getting underway, folks. Edgar Wright is going to start filming the son of a bitch in September, with the plan being to release it next year.
Edgar Wright will direct Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in The World’s End beginning in September for Working Title and Universal aimed at a Spring 2013 release. It’s the third film in the Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy (which includes Shaun of the Dead andHot Fuzz) and, after the jump, we have the first details of the plot.
Thanks to Deadline for breaking this news. Here’s their story info for The World’s End:
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.
Outstanding! It is good to know after the Great Film Deluge of 2012 there will still be some excitement looming in the calendar.
