Edgar Wright will not return to horror comedy: “I said what I wanted to say” Edgar Wright has ruled out any future sequels to his early films such as Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz, stating that he will not return to horror comedy.
The filmmaker broached the topic while promoting his upcoming psychological horror film Last Night In Soho, set to open in the UK this month.
“I haven’t gone back to horror comedy , because with Shaun Of The Dead I felt like I had said a lot of what I wanted to say with that movie,” Wright told SFX. The filmmaker went on to say that he won’t even tackle similar projects as a producer.
“Sometimes they send me movies – people want to do the next Shaun and they want me to come on board as a producer. But it’s hard for me to cover the same territory again.”
Wright goes on to say that tackling new material is what has motivated him to keep going with his work.
“Trying to challenge yourself with a different topic or something you haven’t done before is always the real motivator.”
Meanwhile, the director has credited Quentin Tarantino for the title of his new film.
Wright explained to Total Film that the Pulp Fiction filmmaker – also his old friend – inspired him by talking about a song by Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich.
“In Death Proof, Quentin uses a song by Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich, ‘Hold Tight,'” Wright said.
“I was talking to him about that song, and that band, and he said, ‘Have you ever listened to’ Last Night in Soho ‘?’ He put it on me, and he says, ‘This is the best title music for a movie that’s ever been made.
Last Night In Soho will open in UK theaters on October 29.
