Pegg gives update on his next collaboration with Edgar Wright and Nick Frost.
Talking to Mr. Beaks over at AICN while promoting the release of ‘Paul’ on DVD and Bluray, Simon Pegg shed some light on the anticipated third movie in the Cornetto Trilogy, tentatively titled ‘The World’s End.’
When asked how they will manage fan expectations, the actor said:
“I wouldn’t want to become predictable or be the guys who do that. The next thing that we do will hopefully be… you know, in writing our new thing, Edgar and me have been very determined – that we’re going to start in earnest very, very soon – to not just do the same thing again, to do something very different. Not to the point of alienating people who want something, but just give people something new and something different.”
“You can’t just stay where you are forever. You have to mutate to survive, and I think we’re going to make sure that we do that. I’d hate to become stale and predictable. People are already making films that are kind of like the sort of thing we might do. I want to stay a little bit ahead of the curve at least.”
Mr. Beaks then tried to get an idea of the time frame asking how soon is “very, very soon”? Pegg replied:
“We already started the conception process, so it’s just a question of when we can get together. I’m just about to start shooting a movie here in the UK, so maybe between that and STAR TREK we might get a chance to bang out a first draft if we’re lucky.”
‘Paul’ is available to buy on DVD and Blu-Ray from June 13th.
