Well it took 'em long enough! Yesterday, Deadline debuted the news that Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg's third installment in the Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy, The World's End, will start production this September. That's only like... four months away!
And aside from that, we're blessed with a plot synopsis. Check it out:
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.
That's not at all what I was thinking when I heard Edgar and Simon were doing an apocalypse movie. But when you think about it, this is exactly what the two of them would write. Since the film starts production in September, I'm going to place my bets on a Summer 2013 release for this one.
