You Put Your Wright Pegg in….

So on the surface the title of this post means very little. But keen web enthusiasts and Spaced fans might be able to extract some kid of meaning from it.

*Countdown clock* –  “Sorry we’re closed…” – No answer?

As we start to meander slowly into 2012, you can be forgiven for feeling a little downtrodden with all the pap that pervades our screens – tele, computer and silver. Apart from a few choice selections (for example, the BBC’S Sherlock, or Ridley Scott’s new Alien iteration Prometheus)  2012 has very little to offer us.

But don’t despair, all is not lost!

Comedic overlord Simon Pegg (Spaced, Shaun of the Dead) and geek messiah Edgar Wright (ditto, Scott Pilgrim vs the World) have seemingly started work on the third film in their ‘Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy’, The World’s End.

Working hard..... almost.

Posted on Twitter a few days ago by Wright, this picture has got fans all in a tizz about what to expect from the final collaboration. Though little is known about the film beyond it’s title (and the fact that it will feature a mint choc chip Cornetto), speculation is rife! Is the title a reference to Pirates of the Caribbean At World’s End, implying a pirate-themed final instalment (including Nick Frost as a chubby Depp), or perhaps a twist on the The World is Not Enough suggestive of a Bond-esque covert agent plot line. Both would fit the action-packed variations of the first two instalments – though if it is the latter, Johnny English got in there first! Perhaps the title actually refers to some kind of apocalypse, highlighting the disaster movie franchise including the likes of Volcano2012  and The Hangover Part II. Satire.

Clearly I am letting my mind run away with the smallest tidbit of information here but it is exciting news nonetheless. Roll on the next photograph – hopefully we’ll see more than just the title!

Now do the hokey cokey and turn around, that’s what it’s all about. Hoy!
