Simon Pegg announces ‘Hot Fuzz’ follow-up

Former Shockwaves NME Awards host reveals film plans

Simon Pegg has announced plans for a third spoof comedy movie.

According to BBC News, the actor (who hosted the 2005 Shockwaves NME Awards with comedy partner Nick Frost) has provisionally titled the project ‘The World’s End’.

The film will “complete the blood and ice-cream trilogy” and follows the success of ‘Shaun Of The Dead’ and ‘Hot Fuzz’, which Pegg compared to Cornetto ice creams.

‘Shaun Of The Dead’ has strawberry, ‘Hot Fuzz’ has the original Cornetto flavour, and there will be a mint-choc chip in the third film,” he told The Guardian last year.

“We don’t quite know how or why yet, but it will happen,” he added.
