Edgar Wright’s The World’s End gets the go-ahead from Universal

July 14th, 2012 by Marc Comments

We knew this was coming, but hearing it officially has still made our day… prepare for The World’s End

Yes! Edgar Wright’s closing chapter in the Cornetto Trilogy with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, The World’s End has been given the official get go by Universal. Will it be as good as Shaun of the Dead or, my personal favourite, Hot Fuzz? Let’s just say we are optimistic…
Filiming kicks off in October. Here’s the official teaser poster and synopis, thanks to Deadline.

The film starts 20 years after five childhood friends attempted an epic pub crawl. The 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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
