Simon Pegg has confirmed that he is working on a new movie with Cornetto trilogy director Edgar Wright.

The Shaun of the Dead star said that the duo have held talks about a new project and have already come up with a title.

“Edgar and I were having a conversation the other day about it, and it has a title and everything. We’re kind of into a creative cycle now,” he told BBC Radio.

“We’ve all got different things [going] on and we know we have to get those things done. The coming-together thing is without question on the table and will happen when we can do it.”

Pegg and Wright have previously collaborated on Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End, a trio of films collectively known as the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy.

“When we said the trilogy was over, it was because that group of films was over. They’re all kind of related with each other and deal with a specific idea. There’s a criteria to those films,” the actor added.

“The next thing we do won’t do that, it will just be something else. It will happen. We made three films in ten years and hopefully in the next decade we’ll make another three.

“I really love working with those guys and I wouldn’t ever not want to work with them. It’s not even a question.”

Wright’s next project was supposed to be Ant-Man for Marvel Studios, but the filmmaker recently left the superhero movie due to creative differences.
