It would be shocking if Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright never worked together on a movie following The World’s End, and thankfully, the two will continue their creative partnership.  On a recent interview with BBC Music 6, Pegg announced that he and Wright were pursuing a new project.  “Edgar and I were having a conversation the other day about it, and it has a title and everything. We’re kind of into a creative cycle now…” said Pegg.  “We’ve all got different things [going] on and we know we have to get those things done. The coming-together thing is without question on the table and will happen when we can do it.”

Hit the jump for more.

When we said the trilogy was over, it was because that group of films was over. They’re all kind of related with each other and deal with a specific idea. There’s a criteria to those films…The next thing we do won’t do that, it will just be something else. It will happen. We made three films in ten years and hopefully in the next decade we’ll make another three…I really love working with those guys and I wouldn’t ever not want to work with them. It’s not even a question.

It’s good to know the ball is rolling, and hopefully fans will be patient since Pegg and Wright each have individual commitments.  Pegg has Mission: Impossible 5 followed by Star Trek 3 not to mention any unannounced indies he likes to pursue in between blockbusters.  As for Wright, he’ll be directing the action-crime flick Baby Driver followed by the delightfully insane-sounding Grasshopper Jungle.

It’s good to know that Pegg and Wright are back at it (and since Pegg mentions “those guys”, I’m assuming Nick Frost will be involved as well), and even if it might be a while before we see their next project, I’m betting it will be worth the wait.
