Simon Pegg: The World's End avoids parody

Jan 23 2013, 10:45am CST | by

Simon Pegg says 'The World's End' won't be a parody.

The British funnyman claims the final instalment of his wacky 'Three Flavours Cornetto' trilogy - following 'Shaun of the Dead' in 2004 and 'Hot Fuzz' in 2006 - won't be an obvious spoof of the thriller genre and will tie the franchise together with its message about personal struggle.

He explained: '' 'The World's End' isn't a send-up in any way, in fact, we've gone out of our way not to populate the film with references to other movies, in order to avoid that [parody] label.

''The theme that will bind the three films together is not parody or even ice cream, it's a preoccupation with the struggle of the individual against the collective. Shaun vs zombies, Angel vs the NWA, Gary King vs (???).''

The 42-year-old joker - who is reunited with Nick Frost and Edgar Wright in the new comedy - has big plans for the trilogy and hopes future drama students will pick the movies apart and write essays about the link between them.

Speaking to Blake London, he mused: ''Thematically, it will all make sense when the three films can be viewed consecutively. This sounds lofty but they form a dialectic sequence, which I hope film students will write essays about. 'Shaun of the Dead' = evolution, 'Hot Fuzz' = devolution, 'World's End' = revolution.''

'The World's End' also stars Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan, Rosamund Pike and Paddy Considine and will be released on August 14 in the UK.

First Poster For Kill Me Three Times

Aug 28 2014 1:55pm CDT | Source: Empire Online

Simon Pegg has the killer instinctWe’ve seen Simon Pegg kill a lot of people on screen – but those were largely zombies or villains. Yet for comic thriller Kill Me Three Times, he’ll be a much more morally dubious type. The first poster for the film has arrived, complete with a smoking gun. Sorry, smoking matchbook. Pegg in the film is Charlie Wolfe, a mercurial assassin hired to take out a beautiful woman (Alice Braga) in a sun-baked surfing town. But he soon discover ...
