Edgar Wright‘s sci-fi comedy The World’s End will finally go in front of this September with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost returning to close out the “Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy” (the first two installments are Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz).  The plot centers on five childhood friends going through an epic pub crawl in order to reach the fabled pub, The World’s End.  But as they make their way to the pub, they discover that the fate of humankind is on the line.  We always knew Pegg (who co-wrote the script) and Frost would return since there’s no trilogy without them, but now the first piece of new casting has been announced.

According to The Daily Mail, Rosamund Pike has joined the cast.  There are no details on who she’ll play, but she’s a quality addition to any film.  Hopefully, we’ll discover new details on her role in the near future.  Hit the jump for the film’s full synopsis.  The World’s End is due out spring 2013.  Pike will next be seen in the action-thriller Jack Reacher, which opens December 21st.

Here’s the official synopsis for The World’s End:

“20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub, The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.”
