Edgar Wright's 'WORLD'S END' Starring Simon Pegg And Nick Frost Could Shoot In September With Spring 2013 Release Date

Any thoughts of Ant-Man being released in 2013 have been scrapped as Deadline reports World's End is next for director Edgar Wright. The final film in the Wright/Pegg trilogy (Shaun of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, World's End) is expected to start production in September with a possible Spring 2013 release date. Universal/Working Title are currently working out the details with Wright. We also finally get the film's synopsis which doesn't exactly reveal if aliens are involved or not. At least we know that it will end up earning an R-rating along with Nick Frost in a supporting role.

"20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent 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 home town 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."

This likely means that if Ant-Man does get the go-ahead it won't be going into production until Wright has completed all the press tours for World's End. Giving the impression that it might start shooting after Captain America 2 ends it's production during Summer 2013. It should be enough time to meet that May 2014 release date that hasn't been filled as Edgar is rather quick with post-production.
