Edgar Wright’s ‘The World’s End’ Will Complete ‘Blood and Ice Cream’ Trilogy in 2013


Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost’s Blood and Ice Cream trilogy — which so far includes hits Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz — will soon be shooting the third installment, The World’s End, and it’s expected to hit theaters in the spring of 2013. Deadline broke the news about the project, which Wright and Pegg just finished writing last month. Wright’s time with Scott Pilgrim and Pegg’s involvement with the Star Trek films had fans wondering if the third movie would ever materialize. Wright’s back in the director’s chair with Pegg and Frost together again, 20 years after the epic pub crawl.

“ … 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,” the website shared. “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.”

The trio plans to start shooting in September. Sorry superhero nerds, we’d much rather see Wright finalizing the darkly comedic canon before working on Ant-Man. Let us know if you agree, and predict what’s in store for The World’s End, in the comments below.
