It is finally happening, Edgar Wright the director behind Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is re-teaming with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost to complete their “Blood and Ice-Cream Trilogy” (the first two installments were Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz). The World’s End was Co-written by Wright and Simon Pegg and has been officially announced to start filming as early as September.

Here is the official announcement:

Working Title and Edgar Wright have set a September start date for The World’s End, the last in a trilogy of comedies that started with Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz. Wright, who’ll direct, wrote the script with Simon Pegg. Once again, Pegg stars with Nick Frost. Universal Pictures hasn’t yet green lit the film, but is expected to after the modestly budgeted pair of comedies grossed $108 million worldwide between them. The plan is for The World’s End to reach theaters in spring, 2013.”

Also, check out the official plot:

“20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub, The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.

Edgar Wright is one of the most promising directors working today with three solid films already under his belt, the sky is the limit for this man. The World’s End will be the third time working with Pegg and Frost and if it is anything like their last two efforts, we are in for a treat.
