Edgar Wright’s “The World’s End,” the third film in his loose trilogy of comedies including “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz,” has been officially greenlit by Universal. The film is currently in pre-production and will begin shooting this October in the UK. Check out the official teaser poster unveiled at Comic-Con below.

As in “Shaun” and “Hot Fuzz,” odd couple Simon Pegg and Nick Frost will co-star. The script is co-penned by Pegg and Wright.

“20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub – The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.”
