Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright Will be Teaming Up Again


The Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End) might be over, but Simon Pegg has revealed to BBC Radio 6 Music that he isn’t done working with director Edgar Wright.

Speaking about the possible next project, Pegg said: “Edgar and I were having a conversation the other day about it and it has a title and everything. We’re kind of into a creative cycle now. We’ve all got different things on, and we know we have to get those things done, but the coming together thing is without question on the table and will happen when we can do it.”

He said that the Cornetto Trilogy was its own thing, and although it is over, it doesn’t mean they can’t still work together.

“When we said the trilogy was over, it was because that group of films was over. They’re all kind of related with each other and deal with a specific idea. There’s a criteria to those films. The next thing we do won’t have to do that, it will just be something else. We made three films in ten years and hopefully in the next decade we’ll make another three. I really, really love working with those guys and I never wanna not work with them. So, yeah, that’s not even a question.”

While he does say “those guys,” Pegg gave no indication that his Cornetto trilogy co-star Nick Frost would also have a role.

In related news, Pegg tweeted the following, saying that he and Frost will once again voice Shaun and Ed for the “Phineas and Ferb” Halloween special.
