Edgar Wright’s previous comedies Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz both featured numerous scenes set in pubs. ”I remember saying on Hot Fuzz, ‘I never want to shoot in a f—ing pub ever again!”’ recalls the filmmaker. That was before Wright got the idea for the sci-fi comedy The World’s End. We know that the film involves five old friends (including co-writer Simon Pegg and The Hobbit‘s Martin Freeman) re-creating an epic pub crawl from their youth. But the director is coy about the sci-fi elements other than to say, ”Things get weirder and weirder.” Cheers!
