I thought I was done with Pegg news for the day! He’s playing an awesome-sounding character in “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs”. I met my Pegg-quota. Now I need Pegg-overtime because he talked with Entertainment Weekly and talked not only about “Ice Age” and “Paul”, but his upcoming collaboration with Edgar Wright, tentatively titled, “The World’s End”:
“If Shaun of the Dead was about leaving your 30s and taking responsibility,” says Pegg, “and Hot Fuzz was about being a man, then the next one will be about being an old man,” Pegg bursts out laughing, “being f—ing 40, which I am approaching. Edgar isn’t, the little bastard.”
Somewhere, Clint Eastwood sneers.
As for when this magnificence may happen, Pegg says that he hopes to re-team with Wright sometime this fall. Fall?! That’s fantastic because it means that they could perhaps start shooting the film sometime next year…except how is Edgar Wright going to do this film AND the post-production on his current film, “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World”? I guess he has all that youthful energy, the little bastard.
