Pegg and Wright Talk Their Cornetto Trilogy THE WORLD’S END

The_Worlds_End_Script_Title_Page Three Colours Cornetto trilogy, The World’s End has been a long time coming, but it seems that the wait is soon to get over – Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright have confirmed that they intend to shoot this autumn, with a 2013 release planned. Chatting to Empire, Pegg said that the film involves
a crawl through twelve pubs, culminating in the final one, which is The World’s End,
with Wright adding that
this is as much about where you grew up as the people you grew up with…it’s also very silly. I would say it’s darker, more personal and more silly.”
Though Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz both featured characters in extraordinary situations, paying tribute to zombie movies as well as to action movies, Wright and Pegg’s scripts aren’t lacking for clever/witty dialogue, or heartfelt moments, or complex characters. Wright answers that ‘it’s hard to say’, arguing that it’s ‘a sci-fi comedy’, going on to add
Social science-fiction, look it up on Wikipedia and then bone up on John Christopher and John Wyndham.
The story goes something like this:
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.
