This past weekend marked the ten year anniversary of production on Shaun of the Dead. The film not only launched the film career of its writer/director Edgar Wright (who’s making a Marvel movie for crying out loud!), but its two stars as well. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, previously best known for a little show called Spaced, have since become household faces and names thanks to turns in movies like Star Trek, Mission: Impossible, Attack the Block and Snow White and the Huntsman.
The trio also have their latest collaboration coming soon. The World’s End puts a period on not only Shaun, but Hot Fuzz as well. So it seems like a good time to look back with fondness on the birth of this whole thing.
To do so, Edgar Wright has begun to post behind the scenes photos – some of which have never been seen before – from the production of Shaun of the Dead. Every day for the next month of so (Monday marks day three already), Wright will explain what was happening on the set of Shaun on this day, exactly 10 years ago, complete with a shot list.
Here are two of the images from the first two days of the event. Be sure to keep an eye on the site for the rest of the month to keep up.
The World’s End, the final film in the Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy that began with Shaun of the Dead, opens July 19 in the UK and August 23 in the US.
