The World’s End looks set to bring the Blood & Ice Cream trilogy to a close sooner rather than later, with the news that filming will begin on the project this September.
Back in January, Pegg and Wright revealed they were hard at work on the script, and according to Deadline , cameras will begin rolling this autumn with a view to a release date in early 2013.
The film will follow Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz in the loose trilogy, with Pegg referring his next project via Twitter, as a job involving “plasma and gelato”. As for what we can expect from the script, the new log line is very helpful indeed.
“20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl,” begins the blurb, “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.”
How’s that for a slice of fried gold, eh? Colour us sick with excitement…. the boys are back in town!
