Wright’s beloved Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy (aka the Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy) began with the zombie comedy Shaun of the Dead and the buddy cop action parody Hot Fuzz and was supposed to end with the apocalyptic sci-fi comedy The World’s End. However, the final film has been in unofficial development for years with no clear start date. Thankfully the wait is over!

Deadline has learned that Universal has officially greenlighted The World’s End. According to the article, Wright is currently in pre-production on the film, which will begin shooting in the UK in October. That’s slightly later than the production date previously reported, but still great news for fans of the Wright-Pegg-Frost triumvirate.

I’ve seen Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead at least 20 times and I never get tired of them. And from the sounds of it, The World’s End will be another winner. For those unfamiliar with the movie’s premise, here’s a synopsis of the film via Deadline.


QUOTE
The film starts 20 years after five childhood friends attempted an epic pub crawl. The 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 hometown 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.

Who'd have thought those two would be working together!



And size down the bloody picture, it is literally the biggest picture I've ever seen on GTAF.

Did Edgar Wright not make Paul?

This seems very "Spaced" which could be awesome.
I've never heard of these film as a blood and ice cream trilogy, where does that phrase come from?

Hot Fuzz for me was a little weak but I really loved Shaun of the Dead and Spaced.

No he did not, Pegg and Frost just ended up starring together in it (the producers were probably banking on people expecting it to be by him given that).

Glad to see this is finally coming round, I saw about 15 minutes of A Fantastic Fear of Everything and had to turn it off, f*cking awful film. Hoping this will be great, given how good the last two were I don't doubt it though.

The Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy (also known as the Blood and Ice Cream trilogy) is a series of films directed by Edgar Wright, written by Simon Pegg and Wright, and starring Pegg and Nick Frost.
The first two films in the series are Shaun of the Dead (2004), "a romantic comedy with zombies", and Hot Fuzz (2007), a buddy cop action/comedy film. A third film, The World's End began shooting in September 2012 for a 2013 release.
Each film in the trilogy is connected to a Cornetto ice cream flavour – both of the films released to date feature scenes in which one of the main characters purchases a Cornetto of the appropriate flavour. Shaun of the Dead features a red strawberry flavoured Cornetto, which signifies the film's bloody and gory elements, Hot Fuzz includes the blue original Cornetto, to signify the police element to the film, and The World's End will feature the green mint choc-chip flavour. The use of the three flavours/colours of Cornetto is a reference to Krzysztof Kieślowski's Three Colours film trilogy.

Love these guys. Can't wait to see this.

As for Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. I like both, and I didn't initially like Hot Fuzz as much, but I am an action movie geek, and felt a connection with Frost's character and his love for action movies, especially Point break.

I wasn't too fond of Hot Fuzz the first time I watched it either. Seen it a few times since though and love it, although Shaun of the Dead is still my favourite of the two. This looks good, may have to make a rare trip to the cinema for it.

And Christ, Martin Freeman's been a busy chap lately!

Bloody love Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, can't wait to see this. I hope some running gags return, such as the "never taken a shortcut before?" quote.

Brilliant! Even more excited now. I hope it lives up to the standards of the previous two films.

Great stuff. Still retains the style from the previous films, though it does seem very similar to Shaun of the Dead plot-wise. I loved the fence scene as a homage.

Anyway, this sounds pretty cool.

The joke thing sounds like a cover up haha, I'd rather it be a cover up to be frank, that was lamer than my Broken arm.

Anyway I reckon it's time for a decent new comedy, I can't think of any good ones from recent memory.
