Edgar Wright: Last Night In Soho thriller gets release date


Edgar Wright is leaving comedy behind for a moment with his next project, Last Night In Soho. Although there are no plot details yet, here’s an idea of what we can expect.

Edgar Wright, the man who gave us the greatness that is the Cornetto Trilogy (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End) and the painfully underrated gem Scott Pilgrim vs the World, is back with a psychological horror thriller titled Last Night in Soho. He wasn’t gone for long, but his return to horror is one to be celebrated.

Wright is best known for his visual comedy style, which he always adds to his projects, no matter the genre. His latest work, Baby Driver, was an action movie with some amazing chase sequences and a generous dose of humor, without making it a comedy.

His work in the horror genre has been more comedy oriented, with Shaun of the Dead and the short film/fake trailer Don’t, made for Grindhouse. But it looks like he is ready to go full horror with his new project.

Titled Last Night in Soho, the project is described as a psychological horror thriller set in London, starring Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch), Matt Smith, Thomasin McKenzie, Diana Rigg, Terence Stamp, and Rita Tushingham. Wright co-wrote the story with Krysty Wilson-Cairns and is also serving as producer along with Nira Park, Tim Bevan, and Eric Fellner. According to Deadline, Last Night In Soho has been scheduled for a September 25, 2020 release.

Plot details are a mystery, which is extremely unfair as we’re talking about Edgar Wright, and his projects are always some of the most anticipated of all – and with good reason. As previously mentioned, his visual comedy style has made him stand out, along with the production design and editing of all his films. Quality guaranteed, that’s for sure.

When it comes to the story, it’s hard to theorize what it could be about, as he tends to surprise with the themes and twists in his movies, but what we can be sure of is that he will build most of the tension visually: fast cuts, perfectly timed entrances, and carefully crafted sequences with lots of hidden details. Listen, I’m excited to watch this movie.
