Simon Pegg Wanted Vampries For The Sequel To Shaun Of The Dead

Published

on

Cult Classic is rare distinction for any film, 2004’s Shaun of Dead falls into that category. A zombie comedy from the team of  Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and director Edgar Wright. The trio went on to make Hot Fuzz and At Worlds End, but fans never got a sequel.

During an interview with EW, the group talked about the experience of filming their first movie and possible ideas for a sequel.

“I jokingly wrote a treatment for From Dusk Till Shaun, which was a sequel. Edgar thought it would be funny to do the film again, with vampires. It was all just pub talk.”

The idea is a take on the Robert Rodriguez’s vampire From Dusk Till Dawn. The movie centers on the Geko brothers Seth Gecko (George Clooney) and his paranoid, loose-cannon brother, Richard (Quentin Tarantino), that hide out in bar in Mexico after a robbery. What the pair don’t know is that bar is filled with vampires and the two have to survive the night.

This would be amazing to see Shaun and zombie Ed face off against vampires. Hollywood is the land of sequels, maybe the right people can make this happen. Edgar Wright says, “I would like to work with them again, of course.” and Simon Pegg says, “It’s just a question of sync-ing up our respective diaries.” So who knows what that eventual collaboration will be?
