Simon Pegg And Edgar Wright To Begin Plotting THE WORLD'S END This Fall?

Beaks here...

With Edgar Wright commencing principal photography today on SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD (congrats and godspeed!), and Simon Pegg nearing an early June start on PAUL (with co-writer Nick Frost and director Greg Mottola), it's just way too early to start getting worked up over the final chapter in their "Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy", THE WORLD'S END. So curse that wicked Pegg for ever-so-briefly discussing the mysterious project with Entertainment Weekly's Adam B. Vary when it sounds like we won't be seeing the damn thing until 2011. Here's the salient paragraph:
Finally, this fall, Pegg says he hopes to reteam with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright on another of their genre-bending films, tentatively titled The World's End. "If Shaun of the Dead was about leaving your 30s and taking responsibility," says Pegg, "and Hot Fuzz was about being a man, then the next one will be about being an old man," Pegg bursts out laughing, "being f---ing 40, which I am approaching. Edgar isn't, the little bastard."
I don't know how far along on the script Pegg and Wright are, but they're notoriously meticulous plotters (and we love them for this), so a late '09 start seems hopeful. Fortunately, we'll have SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD and PAUL (which Pegg also discusses in the EW article) to keep us occupied until... THE WORLD'S END!
