"After Shaun of the Dead (zombies) and Hot Fuzz (cops), comes The World's End: the final installment in what Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright have called their three-flavour Cornetto trilogy. The working title can be revealed today, but what the genre might be is another question. Asked by the Guardian if it suggested a sci-fi/doomsday theme, Wright said: "It's kind of going in that direction."

Wright was speaking yesterday as a two-film deal with the UK's leading production company, Working Title Films, was announced in London. The deal will involve him making the comedy with Pegg, as well as a separate action thriller, currently called Baby Driver."

Cool.

A big Roland Emmerich style disaster movie is perfect for their themed trilogy. ... a big american genre that's never really been set in England.

Sounds like a great premise (well, even though it's really just a title), and while it'll be a long while before we see it, here's hoping it makes a fitting end to the (sort of) trilogy

Unless that's the name of the pub!

I wouldn't mind hearing more about Baby Driver. By the title alone, I expect something like The Pacifier, and that frightens me terribly.

Yes, I was right! Sci-fi it is! Interesting working title, but it's bound to change. I did think, for some reason, it would be called Invasion Day, but that's close enough.
