Edgar Wright

Edgar Wright says that his new movie The World's End is more grown up than Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.

The comedy sees him reunite with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost for the film and it is their first film together since the success of Hot Fuzz.

Wright and Pegg have penned the screenplay together and the director believes that they wouldn't have been able to write this script six years ago.

Speaking to SFX the director said: "One of the reasons that there's six years between Hot Fuzz and The World's End is I don't think we could have written this script in 2007.

"I think there are more adult concerns that have come about, just from being older and looking back."

"A director friend of mine who hadn't read the script saw the film the other day and he said possibly the nicest kind of comment about it.

"He said it's more grown-up and more demented than the other two, and I thought, that's good I like that."

We haven't seen Wright in the director's chair since Scott Pilgrim vs The World back in 2010 - however he is set to helm the Ant-Man film for Marvel.

But he has brought together a great British cast for the film as Pegg and Frost are joined by Rosamund Pike, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman and Eddie Marsan.

The World's End is released 19th July.
