Pegg, Frost, Wright: "World's End' wraps trilogy

July 19th, 2013 in News

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have been making movies together for years, but the longtime friends and collaborators say their latest film concludes a trilogy.

The trio presented "The World's End," at Comic-Con on Friday, characterizing it as the final installment in "the Cornetto trilogy," so called for the presence of the branded ice creams in each.

The three previously made 2004's "Shaun of the Dead" and 2007's "Hot Fuzz."

The latest production follows a group of high-school buddies who reunite 20 years later to complete the 12-stop pub crawl they failed to finish on their last day of school. The trio said they came up with the concept while promoting "Hot Fuzz."

"The World's End" opens Aug. 23. Comic-Con continues through Sunday.
