Well, we figured it was pretty much a done deal since the last announcement, but good news has arrived on Day 2 of Comic-Con: Universal have officially given the green light to "The World's End," the latest film from director Edgar Wright and co-writer/star Simon Pegg, which will close out their unofficial trilogy that started with "Shaun Of The Dead" and continued with "Hot Fuzz."

Word that “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” filmmaker Edgar Wright would be reuniting with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost to complete their “Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy” with “The World’s End” surprised many of us when the news arrived back at the beginning of May. All three creative minds have been very busy with a variety of projects since "Hot Fuzz," but with lensing set to begin in September, Wright and Pegg are beginning to tease out what fans can expect from their next collaboration.

Some directors -- very few, when it comes down to it -- are terrifyingly prolific. Steven Soderbergh, Michael Winterbottom, Woody Allen -- all of them seem to make pretty much a film a year like clockwork, and sometimes even more than that. But given scheduling issues, financing problems, and, for the very best directors, the time it takes to actually get a script right, the vast majority of filmmakers end up making a film every three or four years if they're lucky. This can make the wait between films agonizing for fans of a director.

It's now nearly two years since "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World," the firecracker kung-fu romantic comedy that became a critical and fan favorite, even if it never quite set the box-office alight. The film's still playing monthly at rep theaters like the New Beverley in L.A, an instant cult classic, but for nearly 24 months, there's been very little news as to what Wright might do next. He's not been out of the spotlight, thanks to his scripting of "The Adventures of Tintin" and executive producing of "Attack The Block" and "Sightseers," the latter of which will premiere at Cannes in the next couple of weeks. And there have been projects percolating: more writing work has happened on Marvel's "Ant-Man," and the mysterious "Baby Driver" is also on the dance card somewhere, while the director was snapped up by megastar Johnny Depp to direct a new film version of "The Night Stalker" a few months back.

It's been a while since we've had an update about "The World's End," but serial tweeter Simon Pegg has now unveiled photographic evidence of a second draft of what will become the third collaboration between he, fellow actor Nick Frost and writer-director Edgar Wright.

There aren't a lot of things that make us wish we lived in L.A, but one of them is revival theater the New Beverly, and specifically the Wright Stuff seasons hosted by "Shaun of the Dead" and "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" director Edgar Wright. Now in their third year, they've seen Wright screen a selection of his favorite films, often introduced by special guests, who go for a Q&A afterwards.

It was 2004 that the trio consisting of actors Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and director Edgar Wright gave audiences the innovative and highly entertaining zombie comedy “Shaun of the Dead.” While it helped to continue the spread of the zombie film renaissance led by Danny Boyle’s “28 Days Later,” it also helped foster the careers of three unique British talents. Pegg and Frost teamed up with Wright again in 2007 for “Hot Fuzz,” the second part of their unofficially titled "Three Flavours Cornetto" trilogy (a loving nod to Krzysztof Kieslowski), with the former actor going on to see his name in lights with turns in major blockbusters like J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek" reboot and “Mission: Impossible 3” (and of course, the upcoming 'Ghost Protocol').

Yet another press interview for Simon Pegg, and yet another question about the third part of his "Three Flavours Cornetto" trilogy --"The World's End" -- that his pal Nick Frost and their director Edgar Wright, have been working on for what feels like seventeen years. While in the past the actor has enjoyed playing possum over when he'll get the damn thing written -- it was announced as a working title some years ago, but nothing since -- we can take some solace in the fact that at least he's setting some time aside to work on the script. Aside from demonstrating that he's now a seasoned veteran at doling out meaningless buzz phrases (he wants this film to be "ahead of the curve"... no kidding) in an interview with Ain't It Cool News, he also insisted that the scripting would hopefully be happening "very, very soon,” before the actor has to go off and get even more famous in “Star Trek 2.”

Third Installment Of The Cornetto Trilogy Not Even Started, C'mon Guys!If you don't speak geek-ese like we do, here's a translation: The "Three Flavours Cornetto" trilogy is the unofficial nickname of the films made by director Edgar Wright and actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (a nice knowing nod to Krzysztof Kieslowski which we appreciate) Presumably, you've heard of the first two installments, "Shaun Of The Dead" and "Hot Fuzz," and while they are not sequels of any kind, they all star Pegg and Frost, they're penned by Pegg and Wright and they're directed by the "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" filmmaker.
