Last time we saw any photo evidence of Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright‘s effort to write their new film The World’s End, it was just a picture of the two with a whiteboard and an implied hope that ideas would be forthcoming. Now Pegg has posted a photo of the cover page for a second draft of what will presumably be the third film in the ‘not quite a trilogy’ set of films referred to as the Blood and Ice Cream series. (Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz are the other two, with the films linked by a playfulness towards genres, and the Cornetto brand of ice cream.)
The date on this cover page is listed as 5/2/12, which one might interpret as February 5 of this year, in which case this draft has been finished for some time, or the upcoming May 2. Speculate all you like as to which date is the real one (both writers being British I’d expect Feb. 5) but the takeaway is simple: this one is happening, people. Full photo follows.
I know we took our sweet time but as soon as I get back from outer space, we can finish this thing once and for all twitter.com/simonpegg/stat…

Photoshop artists, time to go to town doing some work to attempt to decipher what text is dimly seen through this page. (As if these two guys haven’t assumed that people would do that…)
