Simon Pegg & Edgar Wright Plan New Trilogy

The World’s End marked the end to a self proclaimed trilogy of films from Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg & Nick Frost. Some had speculated that this apocalyptic final chapter in the series would somehow be the final big screen collaboration for the team behind Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead and Spaced. However speaking to the BBC Simon Pegg emphatically confirmed that he plans to make many more film with his best buddies.

Here’s what he had to say:

“Absolutely. Edgar and I were having a conversation the other day about it, and it has a title and everything. We’re kind of into a creative cycle now, and we’ve all got different things on, and we know we have to get those things done, but the coming together thing is without question on the table and will happen when we can do it. Because when we said the trilogy–loftily named ‘The Trilogy’–was over, it was because that group of films is over. They all kind of are related to each other, and deal with a specific idea, and are set at now–there’s a criteria to those films. The next thing we do won’t have to do that. It will just be something else. And it will happen. I mean, we made three films in ten years. Hopefully, in the next decade, we’ll make another three. I really, really love working with those guys, and I never want to not work with them.”
