Shaun of the Dead Director Edgar Wright Looks Ahead to Upcoming Psychological Horror FIlm

The talented filmmaker will soon be trying his hand at another genre.

By Chris Morse

If you've watched any of Edgar Wright's films, you would most likely agree with the statement that he is a highly-entertaining, not to mention talented, filmmaker worth following. From his 2004 classic, Shaun of the Dead, to Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Baby Driver, Wright has no doubt left his mark on cinema with each new direction he's taken. Fortunately for all of us, his next direction appears to be of the psychological horror variety.

In a new interview with Empire, the filmmaker discussed his current projects and revealed his next major film will be a psychological horror-thriller set in central London, inspired by the likes of Don’t Look Now and Roman Polanski's Repulsion. Few details are available about this project just yet, aside from the fact that the screenplay has been co-written by Krysty Wilson-Cairns, but Wright did have the following to say about the setting of the film.

I realised I had never made a film about central London – specifically Soho, somewhere I’ve spent a huge amount of time in the last 25 years. With Hot Fuzz and Shaun Of The Dead you make movies about places you’ve lived in. This movie is about the London I’ve existed in.

The yet-to-be-titled film will shoot this summer and new details will surely begin to be made available as we get closer to that point, so you can be sure that we will keep you up-to-date with all the latest here on Dead Entertainment. Stay tuned for more details on this upcoming horror project from Edgar Wright.
