Pegg and Wright to script The World's End 'very soon'

Simon Pegg has said that he hopes to start writing The World’s End before Star Trek 2 starts filming.

In an interview with Ain’t It Cool News, he said that he and Edgar Wright are going to start on a first draft “very, very soon”.

The sequel to Star Trek will start filming once a script is finalised and Pegg says he’s working on a film before that, so they hope to start work between then.

Pegg also gave some information on what the film might be like. He said they’re going to do “something very different.”

"Edgar and me have been very determined - that we're going to start in earnest very, very soon.

"Not just do the same thing again, to do something very different. Not to the point of alienating people who want something, but just give people something new and something different.

"You can't just stay where you are forever. You have to mutate to survive, and I think we're going to make sure that we do that. I'd hate to become stale and predictable.

"People are already making films that are kind of like the sort of thing we might do. I want to stay a little bit ahead of the curve at least."

Edgar Wright is attached to Them and Ant-Man , while Simon Pegg has finished working on Mission: Impossible IV , Tintin and will be working on Star Trek 2 soon.
