It is finally coming. From the people who brought you such movies as Hot Fuzz and Shawn of the Dead. The World’s End is from the creative team of Simon Pegg and Director Edgar Wright. Filming will begin in September and the film is looking to be released in the spring of 2013.
The plot of this play on the classic disaster/apocalyptic movie is roughly this…….
20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, 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.
It sounds like another of the mundane turned ridiculous films that have made this trio famous.
I will be there opening day.
