Hot Fuzz follow-up 'to be made next year'

Nick Frost reveals plans

A follow-up to Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz could be shot next year, star Nick Frost has revealed.

The film, once provisionally titled The World's End, would reunite Frost with Simon Pegg and director Edgar Wright.

Frost said a script had been written, and that all three now wanted to ‘get on with it’.

In an interview with film website Coming Soon, he said: ‘There is a draft out there, which I've read, and it's great.

‘I think our plan is to crack on and shoot next year – touch wood. They move and they change but we definitely want to get on with it.’

After 2007’s Hot Fuzz, Wright went onto direct Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Pegg and Frost co-wrote and starred in Paul.

The reunion of all three has been mooted for some time, marking the completion of what has been dubbed the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy. Shaun of the Dead features a red strawberry Cornetto, Hot Fuzz includes a blue Classic flavour, and The World's End is due to feature a green mint chocolate chip one.

Pegg has previously said his aim with The World’s End is ‘not just do the same thing again, to do something very different. Not to the point of alienating people who want something, but just give people something new and something different.’
