Simon Pegg Says He’s Written a Vampire-Driven ‘Shaun Of The Dead’ Sequel



Shaun Of The Dead

How many of you horror fans would like to see a sequel to director Edgar Wright‘s 2004 British zombie horror comedy Shaun of the Dead? While we may never see it happen, news has emerged that actor Simon Pegg has written his own follow-up.

Pegg recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly, revealing his idea for From Dusk Till Shaun:

I jokingly wrote a treatment for From Dusk Till Shaun, which was a sequel to Shaun of the Dead,” Pegg told the site.

He contined. “It was all about Shaun and Ed having to go up to Edinburgh, or something. I don’t know. It was ridiculous. And it was a joke. It wasn’t like a serious pitch. Edgar thought it would be funny to do the film again, but with vampires. But it was all just pub talk.

Edgar Wright added that they have also toyed with other ideas for a follow-up.

There was a brief idea we had, that we entertained for all of like 72 hours, where I thought you could do an alternate reality sequel,” said the director, on exploring potential options. “It basically starts with the same movie but then it becomes not about zombies. But these films, they take three years. So, it’s like, if you’re doing another movie, let’s do something completely different.

Sounds hilarious right? Dark Universe will keep you posted if/when we hear more.
