- THE WORLD'S END
The Daily Mail reports that former bond girl, Rosamund Pike will be joining the cast of Edgar Wrights latest film,
Not a lot is known about the project beyond the first official synopsis:
“20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent 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 hometown 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.”
One presumes that Pike will play one of the friends convinced to go on this pub crawl by Simon Pegg's Gary King, as the comedy completes the fabled "Three Flavours Cornetto" trilogy that Wright, Pegg and Frost began with Shaun of the Dead and continued with Hot Fuzz. (The only link in this so called trilogy, is Frost’s and Pegg’s characters eating a different variant of Cornetto trilogy in each film)
According to the story, The World's End will begin shooting in England next month, and we expect more casting to be announced soon.
