HN Entertainment has been able to confirm that costume designer Odile Dicks-Meraux has joined Edgar Wright’s psychological horror film Last Night In Soho, which is currently filming in the Ealing and the Soho/London era. Her credits include HBO’s Chernobyl, Ben Wheatley’s High-Rise, Brooklyn, The Constant Gardner, and Blackadder.
Production for Last Night In Soho is said to be mainly taking place at Ealing Studios, where Edgar previously shot his zombie comedy Shaun of The Dead.
The film’s star Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch, The New Mutants) has been teasing the film taking place during the 1960s, as alluded to with her hairstyle/costume in a handful of set photos she has posted on Instagram. Along with this image of Anya holding a book by Shawn Levy that focuses on London in the summer of 1966.
A 1960s setting wouldn’t be terribly shocking as Wright told Empire the film would be taking inspiration from Roman Polanski’s 1965 film Repulsion. It’s also possible the title directly comes from the 1968 single of the same name from British rock group Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick, and Tich, given Edgar’s love for classic tunes and needle drops in his movies.
At the very least we can expect some swinging British rock tunes.
A release date for Last Night In Soho has yet to be made official.
