Yes! It's happening! The Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead and The World's End creators Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright have reunited with Nick Frost for the first time since the final installment in the Blood and Ice Cream (Three Flavours Cornetto) Trilogy... And if that gets you going then you might want to sit down for this: the movie may be one of another three!
How's THAT for a slice of fried gold!?
I'm about as excited for these guys collaborating as I am for any Edgar Wright movie. And just to clarify, that's a lot. So, it makes sense that the revelation from Pegg gets me totally pumped. In a recent interview with BBC 6 Music, the actor said:
The coming-together thing is without question on the table and will happen when we can do it. We made three films in ten years and hopefully in the next decade we'll make another three. I really love working with those guys and I wouldn't ever not want to work with them. It's not even a question.
Three Flavours Magnum Trilogy, anyone?
With 2004's Shaun of the Dead taking on horror, 2007's Hot Fuzz tackling buddy-cop action, and 2013's The World's End dealing with apocalyptic sci-fi, I only wonder what weird and wonderful uniqueness the next trilogy might provide. Wright, Pegg and Frost always bring out the best in one another, and their past collaborations have struck a delicate balance between comedy, profundity and technical aptitude.
Simply put, I want this in my face right now. What about you?
