Release Date for New Edgar Wright Movie Set for September 2020
Focus Features has announced the new Edgar Wright movie Last Night in Soho will debut in theaters on September 25, 2020, just over a year from now. Production on the film is still underway in London.
Last Night in Soho will star Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch, Glass), Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie (Leave No Trace) Emmy Award-nominated actor Matt Smith (The Crown, Doctor Who), Michael Ajao (Attack the Block), Synnøve Karlsen, Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones), Terence Stamp (Superman) and Rita Tushingham (Doctor Zhivago).
Plot details are light on the movie, but Wright calls it a psychological horror-thriller in the vein of Don’t Look Now and Roman Polanski’s Repulsion. Wright co-wrote the script for the film with Krysty Wilson-Cairns (Penny Dreadful). The film will take place in London’s Soho district.
“I realised I had never made a film about central London – specifically Soho, somewhere I’ve spent a huge amount of time in the last 25 years,” Wright told Empire about the movie. “With Hot Fuzz and Shaun Of The Dead you make movies about places you’ve lived in. This movie is about the London I’ve existed in.”
Nira Park, Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner and Wright will produce. Focus Features and Film4 will co-finance the film. Focus Features and Universal Pictures International will distribute the film worldwide.
