Directed by Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz), The World’s End’s irresistible humor has made it the toast of film reviewers across the nation.

This is the third and final film in Wright’s The Ultimate Three Flavors Cornetto® Trilogy, which also features hits Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz starring Pegg and Frost, available exclusively on Blu-ray November 19th.

The World’s End also stars Paddy Considine (The Bourne Ultimatum), Martin Freeman (The Hobbit), Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes), and Rosamund Pike (Jack Reacher).

DON’T TALK – SIMON PEGG, NICK FROST, & EDGAR WRIGHT ALAMO PSA

Alamo Drafthouse Logo

Alamo Drathouse, as with other recent releases presents its latest “Don’t Talk” PSA featuring Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.  To celebrate the upcoming release of THE WORLD’S END, Wright, Pegg and Frost filmed the Alamo Drafthouse “Don’t Talk” PSA and have a stern warning for anyone who might think about talking or texting during their film. As I’m sure readers (and the writers here) are all quite familiar with their unofficial trilogy of films like the incredible SHAUN OF THE DEAD, HOT FUZZ, and the upcoming THE WORLD’S END, I thought you might get a kick out of the new PSA.

In THE WORLD’S END, five friends reunite in an attempt to top their epic pub crawl from 20 years earlier and unwittingly become humankind’s only hope for survival.

THE WORLD’S END opens in theaters on August 23rd!

JOHNNY DEPP, EDGAR WRIGHT STALK ‘NIGHT STALKER’ REMAKE

Though we probably won’t be seeing it until 2014, Edgar Wright (SHAUN OF THE DEAD) has been tapped to direct a remake/film adaptation of ABC’s classic TV movie and series KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER for Disney. In talks to potentially play the lead of tenacious reporter Carl Kolchak, originally played to perfection by Darren McGavin, is none other than Johnny Depp (DARK SHADOWS, NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, and almost everything Tim Burton has done for the past 15 years or so). Details are few and far between right now as Wright is currently working on WORLD’S END with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (re-united again, their previous collaborations being SHAUN OF THE DEAD and HOT FUZZ) for a 2013 release, but the project has recently acquired writer D.V. DeVincentis (HIGH FIDELITY, GROSS POINTE BLANK) to work on the screenplay based on characters originally created by Jeff Rice, with the first tele-film written by Richard Matheson and produced by Dan Curtis who went on to create the television series.

Synopsis for the original show:

 Chicago newspaper reporter—Carl Kolchak—who investigates mysterious crimes with unlikely causes, particularly ones law enforcement authorities won’t pursue. Often these crimes involve some element of the supernatural or science fiction, such as werewolves, vampires, and zombies. Though he’d always put his life on the line to investigate and stop evil, he was always met with disbelief by his editor and was never allowed to write the entire story for his paper, leaving out the more supernatural details

It’s safe to say I’m a HUGE fan of the original NIGHT STALKER series. Darren Gavin played Kolchak with a dry wit, humor, and intelligence whether arguing with his exasperated editor, or in the face of danger (an obvious model for the Mulder character on THE X-FILES, Chris Carter having said in the past how he was influenced by the series). While I often dread remakes of classics, I have a feeling that with Edgar Wright at the helm and Johnny Depp (in a non-Burton role) playing Kolchak, this may very well be an incredible film. Fingers crossed, boils ‘n ghouls…I’m excited!
