Hot Fuzz hasn't even been released yet, but I'm sure they've got some ideas about what their next collaboration will be. What about 'Full Metal Knackered', an army spoof? Or perhaps 'I know what you did last (get off me you) bummer', where Pegg is a homophobic maniac with a knife? Perhaps not.

I reckon it'll be SciFi. It's the one genre they constantly reference throughout Spaced which they haven't touched on cinematically.

And I want to be in it. Or edit it. Or something.

Hasn't someone already said they are looking at doing a sci-fi film next?

Aye, Simon and Nick mentioned they were working on one, if I remember correctly.

*nod* Nick first mentioned it at ComicCon but Simon's also mentioned it since. It's early days yet though so whether Edgar (who has, at last count, 78 films on his plate wink.gif ) will be involved.

I'm interested to see how they would make it original because there are so many other British sci-fi comedies out there.
Kick in the Head
I can't say I'm filled with much enthusiasm for a take on sci-fi, for much the same reasons as mousespider suggests - it's been done, while what made Shaun of the Dead and from the looks of things Hot Fuzz interesting was the British-comedy slant that hadn't been done before.

Off the top of my head, I can't think of a single British sci-fi comedy film (except HHGG, but that's more of an american version of a british radio show).

Not so much film, but TV shows really, both British and American. And future-set comedies in general feel like quite a tired, well-trodden concept. If it was sci-fi but not set in space or distant future, I'd be interested, but that limits the concept somewhat. However, a great idea would be to make a comedy set in an already existing sci-fi universe, like a side-story or something. Maybe Hot Fuzz meets Blade Runner?

I reckon it should be a comedy version of Day of the Triffids.

I would be equally excited to see Sci-Fi, a period piece, or a spy movie.

Ha, interesting. War Babies as comic relief.

I vote for steampunk as well.

Yup.

I've heard they were thinking of doing a time-travel film...

But Ant Man and Scott Pilgrim first for Edgar, I believe.
