Simon Pegg Has Written A Vampire Themed ‘Shaun Of The Dead’ Sequel

Shaun Of The Dead 1

There’s a catch.

‘Shaun Of The Dead’ is the original and quite possibly best movie in the Cornetto Trilogy, so it’s safe to say that many of us would welcome a sequel to the 2004 Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright caper.

Whilst this might not be that neat to the horizon, Pegg has revealed that he’s written a treatment for a potential sequel revolving around vampires entitled ‘From Dust Till Shaun’. See what they did there? Anyway, this is what he’s got to say about it:

I jokingly wrote a treatment for From Dusk Till Shaun, which was a sequel to Shaun of the Dead.

It was all about Shaun and Ed having to go up to Edinburgh, or something. I don’t know. It was ridiculous.

And it was a joke. It wasn’t like a serious pitch.

Edgar thought it would be funny to do the film again, but with vampires. But it was all just pub talk.

That’s annoying isn’t it? It would be legitimately really great to see all those guys back on screen again, probably chilling at the Winchester.

Unfortunately, Edgar Wright doesn’t sound too keen either, saying the following in an interview recently:

There was a brief idea we had, that we entertained for all of like 72 hours, where I thought you could do an alternate reality sequel. It basically starts with the same movie but then it becomes not about zombies.

But these films, they take three years. So, it’s like, if you’re doing another movie, let’s do something completely different.

Fair play I suppose. Never say never though because all it takes for a movie to become a reality is an idea and it seems like that already exists. Believe.
