The Good Companions. Though we already knew this was the case, considering we reported a few months back they were shooting this fall, Universal has officially announced a production greenlight for Edgar Wright's The World's End. The film is the third in the "Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy" series created by Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, following Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. In addition to the official announcement for the "epic pub crawl", a Comic-Con teaser poster has been revealed (via B-D) that includes the names of the pubs that they're planning to hit in this. It's a fun first tease, check it out below!
"Wright is currently in pre-production on the film, which will begin shooting this October in the U.K."
Here's the synopsis for The World's End: Twenty 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. Edgar Wright is writing & directing. No release date is set, but I think we can expect to see this sometime in 2013.

While the synopsis seems a bit lackluster to me, I have all the faith these guys will pull off something fantastic. Of course, the biggest thing going against this project is peoples high expectations .......thankchristPAULwasntthethirdmoviecuzthatflicksuuuuucked

All this needed to get me excited is "A film by Edgar Wright"

I know this may be finishing The Cornetto Trilogy, but it better not finish the collaboration attempts of these three visionaries.

I don't like Edgar Wright's style of filmmaking, although I liked Spaced.
