Simon Pegg says that the third installment of the Three Flavours Cornetto could come soon

03.10.2011

First off, I'm sure you might be wondering, "What the hell is the Three Flavours Cornetto?" I'll tell you.

Most of us know that the series of movies directed by Edgar Wright and starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as "The Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy". Well, it isn't called that. When MTV posted the article with this story, Wright contacted the site to say this, "FYI - the actual trilogy title (unofficial or otherwise) is Three Flavours Cornetto. Fact! 'Blood and Ice Cream' is an Internet reduction that stuck. It's our tribute to [Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieślowski of 'Three Colors'] through ice cream." Blood and Ice Cream does have a ring to it though...

So far the Cornetto is made up of SHAUN OF THE DEAD and HOT FUZZ. When Pegg and Frost stopped by to speak with MTV about PAUL, Pegg also mentions that the conclusion to the trilogy (rumored to be titled, THE WORLD'S END) could come in 2012.

"Edgar has coughed up that ['Scott Pilgrim'] furball and we're now in the process of regurgitating ['Paul'], so Edgar and I are planning to get together in the next few months to start working on the next in the 'Blood and Ice Cream' series," Pegg added that he hopes his good pal Frost will be "more involved in the creation of that."

"We're hoping hoping, fingers crossed maybe next year would be a good time to make it, even release it," he said.

If the third installment doesn't come in the 2012 time frame, you can't rage out. Pegg warned, "We would like that in an ideal world, but it's not a fact, nor should it be disseminated as such. On the Internet, you have a lot to answer for!"

Hot Fuzz was good but Shaun of the Dead was a slice of fried gold.

Shaun of The Dead by a landslide. Hot Fuzz isn't even in the same class as Shaun. It's worth watching once, but that's about it. I can watch Shaun over and over anytime, it never gets old.

Shaun is not only the better of the two, but one of the best in the horror genre. To me, it's one of those perfect movies. Infinitely rewatchable.

Hot Fuzz wasn't as good to me, as both Pegg and Frost were much more lovable (similarly to Spaced) throughout the whole movie.

very excited for the third!

BUT... I guess I'm alone on this... but I thought Hot Fuzz was terribly disappointing, especially in comparison to Shaun.

...maybe I have to give it another watch, but from the two times I've seen it... I just didn't like it that much...

ONE movie on a desert island...

And it would be Hot Fuzz. I've watched it over 20 times and will gladly pop it in for 20 more. It NEVER gets old, there's always something new to find, and the way it blends so many genres together makes it a true masterpiece. Not to mention it's one of the cleanest editing jobs I've ever witnessed, and Timothy Dalton is simply brilliant. I could go on and on... and on...

I like Hot Fuzz a lot but there is just something so special about Shaun of the Dead.

Nice to know the chances are good that these three are going to get together sometime soon and make another gem for us.

Tidbit: Hot Fuzz. It never gets old.

hmm? hard to decide, but i think Shaun of The Dead wins by a narrow margin.

Both films are equally awesome

Glad to see all the love for Hot Fuzz on here. Shaun of the Dead is liked by alot of people but most seem to dislike Hot Fuzz. I remember seeing it in theaters and being one of the only people in the theater laughing my ass off.

Whatever it is it will be amazing. These guys could do movies with each other movie after movie and I would see each one of them. That's how great of a team they are.

Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz are both great, but Shaun of the Dead is the one I enjoyed more even though the two films are both favorites of mine.

Hot Fuzz & Shaun were equally good...the next one in this trilogy should be the icing on the cake!

Great!

I enjoyed them both, though I've watched Shaun of the Dead and handful times more. I'm totally down for a third installment.

A double post.

But I'll use the space anyway. Have Pegg & Wright implied what sort of film they'd be doing? The rumor was a sci-fi pic, but with a turnaround that quick, I wouldn't be sure.

Cornetto

For those unaware, a Cornetto is an Ice cream popular in Europe, similar to the American Drumstick. Strawberry was used in "Shaun of the Dead" as a hangover cure (Red for gore) and Original was used in Hot Fuzz (Blue for cops). So goes the rumor, Mint Chocolate (Green) would inform a sci-fi bend to the third film.

Either name for the trilogy is fine by me. But yeah, I thought Wright called it Blood and Ice Cream on the podcast as well. Whatevs.

Could it be a send up of end of world / post-apocalyptic movies? Maybe a disaster flick?

It's hard for me to pick between Shaun and Fuzz. Love them both.

I also heard "The World's End" was the name of a bar. They were also rumored to be making a movie about bar trivia a while back. Highly doubt that's what this will be about, but who knows

Conz - the bar idea was "La Triviata", a planned pub quiz sitcom for C4 in the UK. It's since been scrapped.
