of Edgar Wright Shaun of the Dead it’s one of the best horror comedies of all time. Hell, it’s one of the best zombie movies of all time. Over the years, fans have begged for a sequel or prequel to the film. Or even a spin-off that seemed to be suggested in the movie when Shuan meets his friend “Dawn” who had a team that mirrored his own. The joke there, of course, is that the result would be “Dawn of the Dead.” However, both Wright and star Simon Pegg have been asked several times if there are plans to make a sequel to the classic genius.
“It simply came to our notice then Shuan of the Dead 2, because most of the characters are dead. One of them is a zombie, in a warehouse … which would be boring. ” said Pegg.
Wright’s latest film Last night in Soho has reached a lot of Giallo influences and is a great film that reveals how far the director’s technical work has evolved. However, Wright was still asked by fans if he would return to the world of undead and Shuan.
“I didn’t go back to horror comedy, because with Shaun Of The Dead I felt like I said a lot of what I wanted to say with that movie. It’s hard to get back to that, even as a producer. ” said Wright. “Sometimes I get movies that people want to make the next Shaun and want to come on board as a producer. But it’s hard for me to cover the same territory again. “
Pegg admits that, jokingly, he wrote a treatment to From dusk to dawn sequel that would have seen Ed and Shaun go to Edinburgh and featured vampires. Sounds funny and wild, but Pegg says it was a joke, of course.
So it doesn’t look like we’ll get one Shaun continued, but, you know, sometimes one is good enough. It’s something I can appreciate in a world full of too many seasons, too many sequels or too many spin-offs. Too much sugar can rot our movie teeth.
