Edgar Wright Wants To Direct A Straight Horror Film And Will Not Return To The Horror-Comedy Genre Anytime Soon

We at Discussing Film learned at a special ‘Shaun of the Dead’ Q&A Screening with Edgar Wright (‘Baby Driver’) that Wright does not wish to return to the horror-comedy style of filmmaking anytime soon and he clarified he’d like to explore “straight horror” if he we’re to do anything remotely close to ‘Shaun of the Dead’ anytime soon.

Wright is attached to several projects, with three in script stage and the other three projects status being unknown. The three in script development are ‘Collider’, ‘Fortunately, the Milk’ and ‘Grasshopper Jungle’ which is set to be his next feature after his Untitled Sparks Documentary.

With the news we broke yesterday it seems that if Wright were to move forward with a new horror project it would not be a remake, after turning down directing a remake of John Landis’ 1981 horror-comedy classic ‘An American Werewolf in London’ with Max Landis (‘Bright’) now set to direct.

None of the projects Wright is currently working on have a set release date. With his last film being the 2017 critically acclaimed ‘Baby Driver’.
