Edgar Wright says that music was very important to latest film The World's End.

Wright reveals that he and Simon Pegg drew up a list of their favourite songs from 1988-1993 as they were going through the script writing process; many of the tracks became 'structurally important' to the film.

Speaking exclusively to FemaleFirst the director said: "We made this play list of songs, from 1988 - 1993; during this time, I was at school and Simon was at college. Pretty much all of the songs that are on the soundtrack were on this play list.

"Many of the songs that were our favourites become structurally important to the film, such as Primal Scream’s Loaded, I’m Free by The Soup Dragons and Step On by the Happy Mondays.

Therefore, we didn’t just clear them but actually referred to them; we liked the idea that Simon’s character has such a goldfish memory that he repeats the lyrics as if he has thought of them himself."

The World's End saw Wright reunite with Simon Pegg to pen the screenplay, while Pegg and Nick Frost led an all star cast list.

The movie marked the return of Wright to the director's chair for the first time since Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

And Wright is set to start work on Ant-Man, the latest Marvel movie. He has teamed up with Joe Cornish to pen the screenplay and filming is set to get underway next year.
