Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho Dated for Fall 2020

The psychological thriller is only a little more than a year away.

By Chris Morse

It feels like it’s been a long time coming for Shaun of the Dead filmmaker Edgar Wright’s psychological thriller, Last Night in Soho, but today we finally have a release date for the upcoming feature. The film will come to U.S. theaters on Friday, September 25th, 2020 via Focus Features. Overseas distribution is being handled by Universal Pictures International.

Production on the film, which is quite the departure from Wright’s recent comedies, began back in May and continues on as all the pieces steadily come together. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen much from the film apart from the poster and some key art, but we hope we won’t have to wait too much longer for the first production skills so we can get a glimpse at what this movie is all about.

Last Night in Soho stars Anya Taylor-Joy (Glass, Split), Matt Smith (Doctor Who, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies), Thomasin McKenzie (Leave No Trace, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies), Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones), Terence Stamp (Superman II), Rita Tushingham (Doctor Zhivago), Michael Ajao (Attack the Block), and Synnøve Karlsen (Medici).

The film is a psychological horror-thriller set in central London, inspired by the likes of Don’t Look Now and Roman Polanski's Repulsion. Wright is directing a screenplay he co-wrote alongside Penny Dreadful writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns. Production is now underway as the film is scheduled to hit theaters on September 25th, 2020. Be sure to follow Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates on this project as it moves along.
