Simon Pegg has been discussing his working relationship with Edgar Wright, and has confirmed that he is currently working with the director on a completely new project.
“When we said the trilogy was over, it was because that group of films was over,” says Pegg of the Cornetto films. “They’re all kind of related with each other and deal with a specific idea. There’s a criteria to those films.”
“The next thing we do won’t do that,” he continues, “it will just be something else. It will happen. We made three films in ten years and hopefully in the next decade we’ll make another three…I really love working with those guys and I wouldn’t ever not want to work with them. It’s not even a question.”
Indeed, work has already begun on a new collaboration, although just when the duo will find time to actually make it remains to be seen.
“Edgar and I were having a conversation the other day about it, and it has a title and everything,” says Pegg. “We’re kind of into a creative cycle now. We’ve all got different things [ going ] on and we know we have to get those things done.”
“The coming-together thing is without question on the table and will happen when we can do it.” We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that an available slot arrives in both their slates in the near future…
