Edgar Wright Says The World’s End is More Grown Up

At The World's End

The World's EndIn an interview with SFX, director Edgar Wright spoke about the upcoming third installment in his Three Flavors Cornetto trilogy. The previous two films in the extremely loosely connected trilogy are Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Wright said that the third film of the trilogy, The World’s End, is more grown up than the previous two installments, which may sound odd when referring to a group of movies that are only connected through the brand of ice cream featured in them.

Here’s what he had to say about it:

One of the reasons that there’s six years between Hot Fuzz and The World’s End is I don’t think we could have written this script in 2007.

I think there are more adult concerns that have come about, just from being older and looking back.

A director friend of mine who hadn’t read the script saw the film the other day and he said possibly the nicest kind of comment about it. He said it’s more grown-up and more demented than the other two, and I thought, that’s good I like that.

The World’s End premieres in the UK on July 19, while those in the US will have to wait over a month until it is released on August 23. It will also be screened at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival, which runs from July 18 to August 6. More grown up but also more demented, sounds good right? What do you think?
