Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg are working on a new movie!
Yeah Roy! It's been a great couple of days for Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg fans. Yesterday we learned Simon Pegg and Nick Frost will be reprising their roles from SHAUN OF THE DEAD in an upcoming episode of Phineas and Ferb, and in a recent interview with BBC 6 Music, Pegg revealed he and Edgar Wright will be teaming up again for a new movie. Pegg says they've talked a bit about it, and also already have a title for their new project.
Edgar and I were having a conversation the other day about it, and it has a title and everything. We're kind of into a creative cycle now...We've all got different things [going] on and we know we have to get those things done. The coming-together thing is without question on the table and will happen when we can do it.
Pegg goes on to say the new film will be a little different compared to their movies from the Cornetto Trilogy.
When we said the trilogy was over, it was because that group of films was over. They're all kind of related with each other and deal with a specific idea. There's a criteria to those films...The next thing we do won't do that, it will just be something else. It will happen. We made three films in ten years and hopefully in the next decade we'll make another three...I really love working with those guys and I wouldn't ever not want to work with them. It's not even a question.
Speaking of one of "those guys," it hasn't been confirmed if Nick Frost will be involved, but I doubt Pegg and Wright would work on a new movie together without Frost.
Unfortunately, it's probably going to be a while before their new movie hits theaters. Simon Pegg is going to be busy soon with MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 5, as well as STAR TREK 3, although it hasn't been announced exactly when production will start on the Roberto Orci movie. Edgar Wright's next film will be BABY DRIVER, and he's also attached to direct an adaptation of the Andrew Smith YA novel GRASSHOPPER JUNGLE.
