Eight years ago, the world experienced the first feature film of the “Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy” from Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright, and Nick Frost Shaun of the Dead. Years later, the second installment Hot Fuzz was released which featured the trio reuniting again. But, many have wondered when the final installment in the planned trilogy will hit. Well, Nick Frost has revealed that it could be very soon.
ComingSoon spoke with Frost, who they interviewed at the press junket for The Adventures of Tintin, and asked him about the possible reunion between the three. Frost had to say:
“There is a draft out there, which I’ve read, and it’s great, and I think our plan is to crack on and shoot next year. Touch wood. They move and they change but we definitely want to get on with it.”
Wright’s last directorial effort Scott Pilgrim vs. The World bombed at the box office, but has thankfully become an amazing hit on video due to positive word of mouth. He is currently working on his next directorial/producer effort Them, while also being a writer on Tintin as well.
Other than that, Wright’s 2012 looks relatively open, with Pegg free after Star Trek 2 and the upcoming A Fantastic Fear of Everything. Frost, meanwhile, has Snow White and the Huntsman in the bag, but is also free as well, so it seems as if the reunion depends upon Pegg’s availability.
The last time we heard about the film, it was being called The World’s End, but whether or not that has changed has yet to be determined.
Stay tuned for any more information on the project, and see if the film will indeed shoot, and aim for a 2013 release.
