What Other Summer Movie Has Edgar Wright Directed 'One Shot' In?

Edgar Wright / Simon Pegg

One of the movies coming up this summer that we haven't heard much from yet is the new comedy from Edgar Wright, titled The World's End. The film reunites Edgar with his friends Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, stars of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, for the conclusion of the Cornetto Trilogy. Wright is slated to direct Marvel's Ant-Man movie at some point (which he made a short test sequence for) and co-wrote the first Tintin movie for Spielberg/Jackson, but he also has his hand in something else, too. He recently posted a tweet revealing that he "directed one shot in another summer movie" but won't be telling which one it is.

Any guesses? Thanks to SlashFilm and Bleeding Cool for tips and more updates. At first, many thought Iron Man 3 because of Ant-Man, to which he responded: "I can exclusively reveal it is NOT in 'Iron Man 3'." So the other top choice: Star Trek Into Darkness. He is friends with Simon Pegg, who plays Scotty, that's a pretty big in. And Edgar did later tweet "Yeah. Some of you got it right." Note he only says "one shot" not even a scene, so we probably won't know or recognize it until someone finds his name in the credits, if even that. But, since we love Edgar Wright, it's fun to pick up on this and play the guessing game. Any thoughts?

Does one shot, mean he basically just staged everything and that's it?

I think it means he visited the set and snapped a picture with his iPhone.

I think we'll figure it out when in the middle of Star Trek Kirk and Spock decided to just go the WInchester, have a pint, and wait for this whole thing to blow over.
