It’s been a long time coming but next year finally sees director Edgar Wright and co-writer/star Simon Pegg close out their unofficial “Three Flavours Cornetto" trilogy, which began with “Shaun of the Dead” and was followed up by “Hot Fuzz,” with "The World's End." With filming set to start this September, Rosamund Pike (“Wrath of the Titans” and “An Education”) has been added to the film.

It’s been a long time coming but next year finally sees director Edgar Wright and co-writer/star Simon Pegg close out their unofficial “Three Flavours Cornetto" trilogy, which began with “Shaun of the Dead” and was followed up by “Hot Fuzz, with "The World's End." With filming set to start this September, Rosamund Pike (“Wrath of the Titans” and “An Education”) has been added to the film.

Despite being talked about for years, there isn’t really much known about the film other than that it will follow five friends who attempt to duplicate an epic pub crawl they did twenty years ago. In the journey to complete the task by reaching the titular The World's End, it appears they get swept up in something that will put the fate of humankind in their hands. Talk about building up a bar tab. As their past films have shown, the trio love to play with genre tropes, bend and break them, and put it all back together with their unique flavor so we're excited to see what they do here.

We’re not really sure what Pike’s role is -- a love interest? one of the childhood friends? just a random character? -- or how large it will be, but with the start date looming ever closer we'll hopefully get more information, including who else will play Pegg and Nick Frost’s childhood friends. And we imagine some regular collaborators and cameos will pop in as well. “The World’s End” will be released next year by Focus Features domestically. Meanwhile, let us know who you would like to see play Pegg and Frost’s other friends below. [Daily Mail]
