Zombies and musical numbers for Edgar Wright’s The World’s End? [31st October 2012]

Expectations are understandably high regarding The World's End, Edgar Wright's concluding part of the Blood And Ice Cream trilogy. However, we're not sure how many of those expectations concerned the prospect of dancing zombies...

The rumour mill has clanked into action this weekend, after actor Thomas Matthews tweeted about his involvement with the film, and the existence of a potential dance routine...

"1st day filming The World's End," reads the tweet. "Suitably heading for Zone 8....Have no idea what I'll be asked to do but everyone else learning dance routine. Exciting."

That's the dancing accounted for then, but what of the zombies? Over to Twitter once more, and actress Courtney Cornfield.

"Just had a wardrobe fitting for The World's End #dancingzombie #simonpegg" read her first tweet, before a string of others developed her theme. "Just waiting to hear where and what time this zombie is required on set...All geared up to be a dancing zombie. Filming the World's End this week #cornetto"

Sounds like there will be dancing zombies then, doesn't it? Perhaps the film will tie in with the events of Shaun Of The Dead? Or will these be a whole new breed of shamblers?Source: www.totalfilm.com

New synopsis and filming details for The World's End [10th May 2012]

The World's End looks set to bring the Blood & Ice Cream trilogy to a close sooner rather than later, with the news that filming will begin on the project this September.

Back in January, Pegg and Wright revealed they were hard at work on the script, and according to Deadline, cameras will begin rolling this autumn with a view to a release date in early 2013.

The film will follow Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz in the loose trilogy, with Pegg referring his next project via Twitter, as a job involving "plasma and gelato". As for what we can expect from the script, the new log line is very helpful indeed.

"20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl," begins the blurb, "five childhood 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."

How's that for a slice of fried gold, eh? Colour us sick with excitement.... the boys are back in town!Source: www.totalfilm.com
