It’s no big secret that Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright have reunited to finish off what is known as the Cornetto trilogy with this little film coming out titled THE WORLD’S END. Of course this whole wild ride started with a flick titled SHAUN OF THE DEAD and to help celebrate the August 23rd release of THE WORLD’S END the folks behind the film has let loose an interactive screenplay of SHAUN OF THE DEAD and it’s pretty freaking awesome!
Before we take a look at that screenplay lets revisit what THE WORLD’S END is all about.
Director Edgar Wright and actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reunite for a third film following the successes “Shaun of the Dead” (2004) and “Hot Fuzz” (2007). In “The World’s End,” 20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by Gary King (Simon Pegg), a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub – The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.
