The team of Simon Pegg and director Edgar Wright have brought moviegoers some excellent films over that last decade plus. From comedic zombie apocalypses in Shaun of the Dead, to my personal favorite, the odd couple, buddy cop team-up film, Hot Fuzz. It’s been several years now since the two have worked on a project together. In speaking with ComingSoon, Pegg says that it’s a matter of when and not if we see the two collaborate again.
“Oh yeah, that’s like a given. The only reason we haven’t is just timing. Me and Edgar and Nick are not colleagues, we’re friends. We go back a long time and we have a relationship that transcends work, but if only to hang with each other for an extended period we’ll make another film again. It’s just with our various commitments we have to find the time to write and make it. Me and Edgar talk about it all the time, and whenever we’re together we start brainstorming and we have certain ideas we want to develop. It’s just a question of ‘when,’ not ‘if.'”
Since the pair’s last collaboration World’s End in 2013, both Pegg and Wright have continued their success with Pegg continuing to appear in the Star Trek and the Mission Impossible franchises, and Wright’s latest film Baby Driver being certified fresh on RottenTomatoes with a score of 93 percent. I hope we do get another project from Pegg and Wright soon, I’ve always enjoyed their filmmaking and sense of humor.
