Simon Pegg wants to write another movie with Edgar Wright before Star Trek sequel
After an interview with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost for the DVD/Blu-Ray release of PAUL, Ain't It Cool News got to talking about the third film in the Three Flavors Cornetto. There's not a ton of detail, but Pegg does talk about how he wants to bang a script out rather soon with buddy/partner Edgar Wright.
Currently the working title for the third film is still, THE WORLD'S END. Check out what Pegg had to say:
Mr. Beaks: How much do you consider your audience and what they expect from you. Is there a... I don't want to say "burden", but are there expectations you have to tend to?
Pegg: Yeah, and I hope we sort of confound it in a way. I wouldn't want to become predictable or be the guys who do that. The next thing that we do will hopefully be... you know, in writing our new thing, Edgar and me have been very determined - that we're going to start in earnest very, very soon - to not just do the same thing again, to do something very different. Not to the point of alienating people who want something, but just give people something new and something different. You can't just stay where you are forever. You have to mutate to survive, and I think we're going to make sure that we do that. I'd hate to become stale and predictable. People are already making films that are kind of like the sort of thing we might do. I want to stay a little bit ahead of the curve at least."
Beaks: You said "very soon". Can you say how soon?
Pegg: We already started the conception process, so it's just a question of when we can get together. I'm just about to start shooting a movie here in the UK, so maybe between that and STAR TREK we might get a chance to bang out a first draft if we're lucky.
