So...we've had Shaun of the Dead, a rom zom com. And we've had Hot Fuzz, an affectionate nod to police action thriller films. What can we expect from the third and final film in the sacred Pegg/Frost/Wright trilogy?

I predict that sci-fi will be our genre ripe for "spoofing" this time around, considering that it is such a huge genre, as big as horror and action. What we can assume so far is:

The film will probably be out in 2010.
The Cornetto flavour will be mint, or mint choc chip.
Someone will try jumping over a fence in order to take a shortcut, asking "What's the matter? Never taken a shortcut before?".
There will be much bloodshed.
Edgar Wright will direct and co-write.
Simon Pegg will star in the main role and co-write.
Nick Frost will probably be the sidekick and add to the script in rehearsals, being the first to be read it.
Edgar Wright will have at least one cameo in the film.
The names of the characters will tell us something about their role in the film (e.g. Ed = undead, or Tim Messenger).
The stars will be a mix of comedy stars of recent years and stars of the big screen.
Given that Martin Freeman, Bill Nighy and Joe Cornish have appeared in SOTD and HF, they may well appear again.
There will be many callbacks and call forwards throughout the film (e.g. "You've got red on you" and "The greater good").
There will be more spoofs and references to other works of the chosen genre than you can shake several sticks at.
Fans from this very messageboard may be lucky enough to have cameos in the film (I'm certainly going to try!).

I have a feeling that the film will attempt to do something similar to Invasion of the Body Snatchers, though hopefully without making it too similar to the zombie-fication in SOTD.

You weren't one of the interviewers on their press tour were you?

You've done zombies, you've done cops, what's next?


I have my own theory about what I think the 3rd movie in the Blood & Ice-Cream trilogy will be - but I'm keeping hush on it for now.

Cornetto Western, by any chance?

That'd make sense actually.
That way, Edgar could slap A Fistful of Fingers on the dvd's 2nd disc.

I'm thinking maybe a war movie... plenty of blood to be shed there. But how would they crowbar a cornetto into it?

As nice as thought as that is, Simon has said that he isn't doing a period piece, and Edgar has said that he won't be doing another western. War? Well it's a big genre, but would it work with a pub and a Cornetto involved?

And no, I wasn't the interviewer. Just a little obsessive.

Based on their work in Spaced, having dallied with horror and action, the other genre that informed their references more than anything else was sci-fi. Nothing set in space or too far into the future, but I can imagine them playing around with time-travel, cloning, new technology; y'know, something in a Bill and Ted or Weird Science fashion.

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 didn't realise Ruthless People was a ZAZ film?! Excellent. That's a film that I need to watch again as it has some classic lines in it. Also, from interviews and what have you it seems to me like a USA road movie is on the cards, but who really knows. Time will tell and all that jazz.

'Paul' is there USA road movie, isn't it? I don't think Edgar is involved with that one.

I remember Simon joking that he and Nick would like to do a really serious film like Nil By Mouth next. Even if it was a joke, that'd be interesting to see.

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.

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

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.
Gluben
P.S. I would like to see Mark Heap and Katy Carmichael in the third film, thus making sure that every main cast member from Spaced appeared in the trilogy...
dolfyn
^ Yeah, I like that idea! happy.gif I hope they do that. It would tie up the trilogy in a neat little bow. cool.gif

Wasn't Ada meant to be in Shaun of the Dead, eating a zombie?

Anyway, I did have a thought on Cornettos, and apparently there are 6 flavours: strawberry, classico (vanilla), mint, chocolate, whippy, and choco disc. So they could do more films (maybe a second trilogy) if they wanted to! According to Wikipedia, previous flavours have included lemon and rum 'n' raisin, and there's always the Cornetto Soft brands as well...!

So why strawberry, vanilla and mint? Obviously vanilla is the original flavour, but are strawberry and mint the most common after that, or the most popular? I guess they chose the genre over the ice cream, and the flavours had to match!

It would be really good to see them in it. Mark was supposed to be in Hot Fuzz initially but couldn't be in it so Kevin Eldon took on the role instead. I heard from somewhere it was because of a back problem, not sure whether that's right or not.
