Nick Frost Says Final Film in 'Cornetto' Trilogy Might Shoot Next Year

Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg & Nick Frost

If you're a big fan of Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, you should already know what the Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy is, also known as the Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy. The first film was Shaun of the Dead, the second was Hot Fuzz, and the third is yet to come, but all three star Simon Pegg & Nick Frost and are directed by Edgar Wright. We've been waiting for, and reporting on, the third film ever since Hot Fuzz came out in '07. ComingSoon recently caught up with Nick Frost and got an update on the third film, which he said might shoot next year, as there's already a script, which we know as The World's End.

Since this has obviously been in the works ever since Hot Fuzz, it's just a matter of getting it going, and we always know that despite any word, nothing is ever set until it's actually shooting. As with The World's End, here's what Frost says about it and it's potential to hopefully shoot next year, but who really knows. He says:

"There is a draft out there, which I've read, and it's great, and I think our plan is to crack on and shoot next year. Touch wood. They move and they change but we definitely want to get on with it."

So there you go, we'll have to wait and see if this actually happens. To be honest, I'm not even sure what The World's End is about, as I can't find much on the plot, but it should be interesting nonetheless. The Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy refers to a Cornetto ice cream flavour, featuring a scene in which one of the main characters purchases a Cornetto of that film's flavour. Shaun of the Dead features a red strawberry Cornetto, Hot Fuzz includes a blue Classic flavour, and The World's End is due to feature a green mint chocolate chip ice-cream The use of the three flavours/colours of Cornetto is a reference to Krzysztof Kieślowski's Three Colours film trilogy. I really hope this turns out to be the case, let's finish the Cornetto trilogy already!

Shaun of the Dead was brilliant, Hot Fuzz grew on me after a while...bring on the third helping!

I was pretty happy that scheduling conflicts prevented Wright from joining Pegg and Frost on 'Paul,' as that movie seemed destined for mediocrity from the get-go. I cannot wait for their next collaboration and see Wright work his magic with his British brethren. Since there doesnt seem to be a real reason as to why this would need to be their last movie together, I hope the Cornetto trend continues!

These guys do their best work when they are all three together.  Spaced is one of the best (though shortest-lived) sitcoms ever, Shaun of the Dead is a perfect blend of comedy, drama, and gore, Hot Fuzz lampoons just about everything in action movies better than the National Lampooners, and I have no doubt The World's End will live up the the benchmark set by the previous two films in the trilogy.

Alright, just the motivation I needed to not welcome death's sweet embrace.

Nothing to say except that the world needs a third helping of brilliance.

Also, there are plenty of ice-cream lets hope green-mint is not the final dip.
