Edgar Wright talks Cornetto, Scott Pilgrim at EW's CapeTown Film Fest
At the Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles during EW’s CapeTown Film Festival, writer and director Edgar Wright discussed the origin of the ice cream jokes in his “blood and ice cream” trilogy (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and the upcoming The World’s End) — amongst other things at back-to-back screenings of his films Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.
Guests were also treated to exclusive footage of some of Wright’s upcoming movies, as well as a panel of Evil Exes, answering questions about the lines they most enjoy having quoted back at them. Mary Elizabeth Winstead, better known as her character Ramona Flowers in Scott Pilgrim, said she will never tire of having people tell her they are “in lesbians” with her.
Below, check out some of the best moments from last night’s Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World Q&A’s, moderated by EW writers Anthony Breznican and Geoff Boucher. Wright was more than eager to re-visit some of his past projects, as well as teasing the third film in the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, out later this summer.
Fair warning — some harsh language follows.
