Edgar Wright is expected to begin shooting Ant-Man as soon as he completes his work filming The World’s End, the final installment in his Blood and Ice Cream trilogy. The apocalyptic film will reunite Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost for another comedic take on a genre film. Now with production expected to begin next month, The World’s End is adding a few more pieces. This time the Daily Mail reports that Rosamund Pike will be joining the cast of the film.
It’s not entirely known who Pike will play, although the teaser poster that was released earlier this year may reveal she could be a bartender or be a part of the group (presumably led by Pegg and Frost’s characters) that go bar hopping before the world comes to a cataclysmic end. The synopsis below also may hint at who she could play. But until we get confirmation, all we could do is speculate.
Pike recently had a starring role in Wrath of the Titans and will be seen starring alongside Tom Cruise in Jack Reacher.
20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent 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 home town 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.
