The World’s End, the third film in director Edgar Wright’s trilogy of comedies with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost that began with 2004’s Shaun of the Dead and 2007’s Hot Fuzz. And there are reports today that Paddy Considine (pictured above), a Fuzz alum, will indeed be returning to the Wright, Pegg, Frost fold.
Per Variety, “Considine will play a former ladies man and musician who has grown up to be a divorced architect.”
“The film starts 20 years after five childhood friends attempted an epic pub crawl. The 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.” Pegg wrote the script with Wright and once again stars with Frost.
Wright is currently in pre-production on the film, which will begin shooting this October in the U.K.
