Paddy Considine is re-teaming with Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost for the upcoming The World’s End. Variety reports that the actor, who previously appeared in the team’s Hot Fuzz, will play a former charmer who is now a divorced architect.
Now in production in England, the film is officially described as follows:
20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent 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.
In addition to Pegg and Frost, Considine joins Rosamund Pike in the Focus Features release.
