Edgar Wright recently spoke with EmpireMagazine and revealed his next film would be a psychological horror film and was aiming to begin filming this summer in London’s West End neighborhood of Soho with a female lead.
Talking to Empire, Wright revealed his next project is a straight-up psychological horror-thriller – he cites Don’t Look Now and Roman Polanski’s Repulsion as influences – set in London, and starring a female lead.
“I realized I had never made a film about central London – specifically Soho, somewhere I’ve spent a huge amount of time in the last 25 years,” Wright tells Empire in the new issue, out 24 January.
HN Entertainment can now exclusively reveal the film’s title will be Last Night In Soho.
We were able to confirm that production designer Marcus Rowland will yet again reunite with Edgar for Last Night In Soho. His credits include Shaun of The Dead, Attack The Block, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim vs The World, The World’s End, Baby Driver, Rocketman, and The Kid Who Would Be King.
The film’s cinematographer is expected to be Black Mirror: Banderstach’s Jake Polonsky, who worked as a second unit cinematographer on The World’s End.
It’ll be interesting to see Edgar Wright tackle the psychological horror genre as there is a good chance it won’t be as comedic as previous films taking a more grounded/serious tone. While speaking with Empire, he cites films such as Don’t Look Now and Repulsion as influences on it, reinforcing the expectation of a different tone.
Wright co-wrote the script with Krysty Wilson-Cairns.
A release date has yet to be revealed for Last Night In Soho.
