Per Deadline’s story, Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost will reunite for the third in the loose trilogy which began with “Shaun of the Dead“ and continued with “Hot Fuzz“, with shooting expected to start in September and a Spring 2013 release pencilled in.
What this means for the heavily rumoured, Wright-helmed “Ant Man“ movie is anybody’s guess – will we get a “Guardians of the Galaxy” (that’s them pictured above) movie instead in 2014 or the equally long talked-up “Doctor Strange“ film to bolster the cosmic side of the Marvel movie universe?
After a crappy day at work, believe me when I say that this picture makes things quite a bit better:
How's that for a bit of Fried Gold?
The mere prospect of Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and (let us hope) Nick Frost working on the final part of their “Three Cornettos” trilogy makes me very happy. Why not read Slashfilm’s take on things?
I met Simon Pegg once, at a signing for his autobiography/memoir/deranged ravings of a bearded genius, “Nerd Do Well”. He was as splendid a chap as you could have hoped for and was very nice about my Scott Pilgrim shirt. Isn’t it cool when the people that you admire turn out to be thoroughly decent?
