Kev, you'll obviously be in the know about it long before any of us are. Lucky thing! rolleyes.gif

Here's an idea.  Call me crazy, but maybe they might write a film that is not a homage any specific genre whatsoever!
It seems a bit odd pigeonholing filmakers on the basis of two films.  Why should everything they do be a parody/homage. (though i personally wouldn't call Shaun or Fuzz parodies)
Zucker/Abrahams/Zucker did disaster movies with Airplane, war movies with Top Secret and then?  Ruthless People.  Not a parody of anything but still a great ZAZ  film. (Ok, so they did Cop shows after with Naked Gun).
Having said that, I'd happily welcome another Wright/Pegg spin on a genre.  A road-trip movie perhaps.

I think they probably will do another homage to a particular genre, because that would round out the "trilogy" idea. After all, it was Simon & Edgar who first started calling it a trilogy. So it'd be reasonable to assume they'd be following along the same lines. As for the actual genre, it's still anybody's guess (except Simon & Edgar's, obviously!). cool.gif It's fun to speculate, though. happy.gif

Feel the love.

Yeah I'm sure they will make plenty of non-genre movies in their future.
But the way they have spoken about this "trilogy" would suggest at least one more genre film before that.

Gen - Nick & I would crawl across a flaming pit of broken glass & used syringes for Edgar & Simon, as they're such lovely guys.

Like the man from Del Monte, Nick & I will always say "yes". smile.gif

I might be way off base here, but according to the subtitles on Hot Fuzz, it said the colors of the Cornetto wrappers represented something with the movie (strawberry/red representing blood for SOTD, vanilla/blue representing the police for Hot Fuzz) so I'm thinking maybe the mint/green is gonna represent weed and they will make a stoner movie (Cheech and Chong, Half Baked, Dazed and Confused)....I don't know just an idea. lol cool.gif

i don't know, i think they could pull off a good stoner movie, using their brilliant wit instead of just making jokes about being hungry lol

What I'm curious to see is how the relationship between Simon and Nick will work this time, and what the theme will be. SOTD was about turning 30 and sorting your life out, and HF was finding your right environment and how to switch off and just enjoy yourself.

Shaun was really a slacker and bright enough when it came to confronting Ed or his stepdad, but not when talking to Liz. Ed was even more of a slacker and careless.

Nicholas Angel was the opposite of Shaun in that he was dedicated to his job and took everything too seriously. Danny Butterman was more naive than Ed and looked up to Nicholas as a role model of sorts.

How else could the dynamic work while still being original? I suppose the third film could be about making yourself known and finding your identity, because I think that's what a lot of sci-fi likes to be - the everyday man making his way to fame. Shaun didn't quite achieve this because he wasn't perfect, but he didn't need to be.
