Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright’s amazing friendship has been a fruitful one for film fans. It’s birthed three great films, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End and I’d be remiss not to mention the geeky greatness of Spaced.
Looks like they’re going to be treating us to another team-up.. or three?
Edgar and I were having a conversation the other day about it, and it has a title and everything. We’re kind of into a creative cycle now.
When we said the trilogy was over, it was because that group of films was over. They’re all kind of related with each other and deal with a specific idea. There’s a criteria to those films. The next thing we do won’t do that, it will just be something else. It will happen.
We made three films in ten years and hopefully in the next decade we’ll make another three. I really love working with those guys and I wouldn’t ever not want to work with them. It’s not even a question.
I say the sooner, the better, pick Nick Frost up on the way. Get started yesterday!
