Teaser Poster For Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg And Nick Frost's Next Film
Edgar Wright isn't appearing at a panel at Comic Con this year-- that is, unless his Ant-Man test footage makes an appearance-- but he's already managed to make some of the best headlines of the Con anyway. Universal has finally given the green lit to his long-awaited third film collaboration with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, called The World's End, according to Deadline. And they've also unveiled a teaser poster, that doesn't contain any looks at the film-- it hasn't started shooting yet, so that wouldn't make any sense-- but contains plenty of the trio's signature humor. Take a look at it below.
As you might guess, that poster is a list of pubs that are frequented by our group of heroes, five childhood friends who attempted an epic pub crawl 20 years ago and reunite to give it another shot. As Deadline's summary says, "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." It looks as if Wright, Pegg and Frost will once again be tackling regular relationship and life problems through the structure of a genre movie-- for Shaun of the Dead it was saving a relationship while battling a zombie apocalypse, and for The World's End it looks like they'll be learning how to group up while also facing the potential demise of the planet.
The "2013" promise on the poster is vague enough to be both exciting and totally frustrating, since we have no idea what that might actually mean. But production is set to begin in October, so counting on a release sometime next summer might not be totally crazy. Universal will only be handling the international distribution, so count on a Focus Features release sometime next year that will bring the dose of Pegg/Frost/Wright comedy we've been sorely missing for years now.
