"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.
Kick in the Head
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.
CazBag
Sounds very exciting! Looking forward to hearing more about this. Cheers for that Llama!

WOOOO!!! I told them to write a sci-fi film at a signing, and they are doing it lol !!1!11 Now if only Simon Pegg will read the script I left outside his house.
Llama
Calm yourself, Spanish.

Ta for that, Llama! Sounds insteresting!

Yay, series 3, Tim & Daisy save the world!!!

It makes perfect sense if you think about it - Considering they're doing homages to the types of movies that they love - You know that sci-fi is a big one there (especially for Simon Pegg).

Too cool! smile.gif

This better be the bukkake film they've been talking about.

^ Surely that'd be "The World Climaxes."

There's got to be a world's end joke in their somewhere, but I can't see it.

Where's Ade when you need him?

Sure, it's not up to Ade's level of pun mastery, but let's be honest... who is. Who farking is?

Massive squeeeeeeee! biggrin.gif *jumps up & down, clapping hands*

I know it's only a working title, but it just makes it feel more real that it's happening. Exciting! happy.gif

"World's End" could also refer to Australia in some way, as we're sometimes called "the arse-end of the world", & Simon & Edgar did come up with the idea whilst arriving in Sydney. cool.gif
Just a thought. smile.gif

(Or it could refer to McSpaced being unleashed upon an unsuspecting public!) rolleyes.gif

Feel the love.

Sooooo what are we thinking?

Disaster movie? Blizzards, hurricanes, earthquakes, fires?

Or maybe Japanese-style giant monster movie?

Regular sized monster movie?

Werewolves? Vampires? Killer robots?


The possibilities are endless biggrin.gif

My guess is Aliens want to take over the world. ... and to do so they induce all sort of weather... Blizzards, hurricanes, earthquakes ... then a massive increase in global warming. (good time for a mint cornetto).
...except, we don't see much of all that... just what Simon & Nick's characters are up to in Crouch End.

I'm gonna try not to speculate any further.
Kick in the Head
I've got an inkling it will be all about the build-up to an impending apocalypse, the panic, the chaos, but chances are our heroes don't care. Either it all ends in a damp squib and nothing happens...OR the world does end, but our nonchalant heroes are the only survivors. Or something.

Maybe it's a homage to Wim Wenders.
shaka37
I really hope he does this about weather or nuclear holocausts or meteors. This really sounds brilliant.

When I saw the working title of this movie, I instantly thought of Pirates of the Caribbean 3, because it's so similar; At World'd End / The World's End. Not that it matters, really. *shrug* smile.gif

I saw it as just a differnt way of saying Armageddon, really.
The Worlds End, of course, not pirates.

But anyway, no doubt this one will blow my head clean off my shoulders. Twice.

Actually, it'd be really nice if it was an apocalypse movie & they actually featured that pub in the film.
Rebus
So what references would you expect to see in the film? Hard-bitten teams of drillers? Bloodthirsty wolves inexplicably roaming the streets of London? Mice finalising their plans for domination?

Perhaps they hear Sky News that a small group of english plumbers/roofers/factory-workers etc. have been sent into space by virgin-galactic, in order to save the planet from whatever impending doom awaits it.

Maybe it will be a film about a bunch of soul-less television producers in the US who ultimately bring about the demise of the human race through their complete disregard for morals and courtesy tongue.gif
