Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost back together for "The World's End"

Good news!

Edgar Wright's been awfully quiet since Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, but it looks like he'll back behind the camera this September to lens the next collaboration between himself and the two leads from his first two movies (those movies are Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, of course).

Logline: "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."
