Simon Pegg Looking to Do Another Comedy Trilogy

By on August 23, 2014


Simon Pegg seems to be eyeing another set of films with frequent collaborator Edgar Wright. Their last film, The World’s End concluded the “The Cornetto Trilogy” which also included 2004’s Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz in 2007.

Pegg revealed in an interview with BBC radio that he definitely. plans to start a new trilogy of films with Wright.

“It will happen. We made three films in 10 years and hopefully in the next decade we’ll make another three,” Pegg said in an interview with BBC radio station BBC 6 Music, adding that he and Wright were now working on a new film that already had “a title and everything.”

The new set of films will not, however, have anything to do with the Cornetto Trilogy, he confirmed. The World’s End definitively ended the first trilogy.

“When we said the trilogy was over, it was because that group of films was over. They’re all kind of related with each other and deal with a specific idea. There’s a criteria to those films. The next thing we do won’t do that; it will just be something else.”

Unfortunately, Pegg did not comment on whether frequent co-star Nick Frost would be involved. Frost has starred in all three of the Cornetto films as well as alongside Pegg is various other projects.
