Ever since Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright’s UK horror comedy Shaun of the Dead hit theaters back in 2004, horror fans have been begging for more. While the duo have moved on to bigger and better things, there was always hope they’d re-team again for something horrific – while that’s not exactly the case here, at least the duo are about to take on the end of the world. Read on for the skinny.
While a sequel to Shaun of the Dead looks to be dead in the water, the duo behind the popular horror comedy are working together again, this time to try and survive the end of the world.
Finally, this fall, Pegg says he hopes to reteam with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright on another of their genre-bending films, tentatively titled The World’s End, reports Entertainment Weekly. “If Shaun of the Dead was about leaving your 30s and taking responsibility,” says Pegg, “and Hot Fuzz was about being a man, then the next one will be about being an old man,” Pegg bursts out laughing, “being f—ing 40, which I am approaching. Edgar isn’t, the little bastard.”
Looks like we’ve got something to look forward to!
