Shaun of the Dead

Ever wanted to see a sequel to Shaun of the Dead? I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you probably never will. Still, it is something that has at least tempted the minds of those who made the movie.

The cast and crew behind the movie, including director Edgar Wright and stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, recently chatted about the movie, how it came to be, actors who were circling roles (including Oscar winners Kate Winslet and Helen Mirren), the vampire sequel they joked about, and more. You can see what they had to say below.

Edgar Wright Discusses The Importance Of Each Song On ‘The World’s End’ Soundtrack

The World's End Soundtrack

The World’s End has arrived; not the actual one (that was back in December 2012, so we were told), but the third and final movie in writer-director Edgar Wright and writer-star Simon Pegg‘s genre-bending and blending “Three Flavours Cornetto” trilogy – read my review here – that also includes Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.

This past Tuesday, the soundtrack was made available was released on CD and MP3. As with his filmmaking contemporaries Quentin Tarantino and Paul Thomas Anderson, Edgar Wright plans out the various songs he intends to feature in his movies early in the pre-production stage and uses them to express the inner thoughts and emotions of his characters when dialogue simply won’t do the trick. In a recent interview with Indiewire, Wright went track by track on the World’s End O.S.T. and discussed the role each selected tune plays in the film’s narrative.

According to the director the songs that comprise the soundtrack were chosen specifically as a means of linking the character Gary, played by Pegg, to his fruitless pursuit of good times all the time in the face of middle age.

Movie Review: The World’s End

The World's EndThe World’s End
Directed by Edgar Wright
Written by Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg
Starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Martin Freeman
Focus Features
Release Date: August 23, 2012 (U.S.)

“We wanna be free! We wanna be free to do what we wanna do. And we wanna get loaded. And we wanna have a good time. And that’s what we are gonna do. We are gonna have a good time… We are gonna have a party.”

That little speech – abbreviated slightly from its original version – plays a large role in defining the theme of The World’s End, the eagerly-anticipated closing chapter in the “Blood and Ice Cream” (or “Three Flavours Cornetto”) trilogy that director Edgar Wright and his frequent star and co-writer Simon Pegg created a decade ago with the romantic zombie comedy Shaun of the Dead and continued in 2007 with the blazing police action drama spoof Hot Fuzz. The speech was first heard in the 1966 biker movie classic The Wild Angels and was given by Peter Fonda’s character Heavenly Blues. I recognized those lines the moment they were played on the soundtrack.

The World’s End is, I believe, about the futility of trying to recapture your lost youth when you never lost it to begin with. But it is also about how when most of us enter adulthood we take it upon ourselves to abandon our youthful identities completely and replace them with domesticity and responsibility. The five main characters of The World’s End never learned to reconcile the buttoned-down, easy-going side of their personalities with the spirited sense of fun and friendship that defined them as people growing up. The lead character decided to remain a child forever but instead grew into a sad and bedraggled wretch of a human being while his four best friends became hollow shells of what they once were.

This week as The World’s End approaches its American theatrical debut, Focus has given the fully interactive treatment to the screenplay for the Cornetto trilogy middle chapter Hot Fuzz, the very British spoof of over-energized American action flicks of the past four decades, written by Pegg and Wright.
