Edgar Wright’s “World’s End” Set For 2013

“The World’s End”, the long-anticipated final film in Edgar Wright’s Cornetto trilogy which includes “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz”, is targeting a September start of shooting date reports Deadline.

There’s even a synopsis available: “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.”

While Universal and Working Title haven’t green lit the film yet, that’s expected to happen shortly with a Spring 2013 release already in mind. As usual, Wright and Simon Pegg co-wrote the script, Wright will direct while Pegg and Nick Frost will star.
