Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost getting the apocalyptic band back together for The World's End

After years of working separately but not always equally, Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost are finally set to reunite on The World's End, the promised capper to the super-bloke trilogy launched by Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz. As with those films, World's End concerns some immature every-dudes clinging stubbornly to their stunted ways amid ominous circumstance—in this case, old drinking buddies whose epic pub crawl unfortunately coincides with the apocalypse that is hitting approximately half of the movies over the next year or so, because obviously we've all got something on our minds. Deadline reports that it's expected to shoot in September with an eye on release in the spring of 2013, at which point Wright can resume fielding questions about and/or working on the equally long-promised Ant-Man for Marvel, provided he's not saved by the bell of the actual apocalypse.
