Edgar Wright's follow-up to Baby Driver will be here in just over a year. Focus Features has announced they will release the filmmaker's latest Last Night in Soho on Friday, September 25, 2020, domestically. Universal Pictures International is handling the overseas release and we don't, as of right now, have specific dates for the international rollout. Either way, those of us in the States have this to look forward to in the Fall of next year.

Little has been revealed about the movie so far. We know it will be something of a departure for Edgar Wright, as it's not going to be a comedy. Instead, it's been described as a thriller. Wright, in the early stages ahead of filming, used Nicolas Roeg's 1973 thriller Don't Look Now and Roman Polanski's 1965 feature Repulsion as touchstones. As of this writing, there is no official plot synopsis or anything of the like.

Truth Seekers: Simon Pegg and Nick Frost to Lead New Horror Comedy Series

Rob Leane Aug 6, 2019

Truth Seekers, an Amazon Prime Video original, will bring Pegg and Frost back to horror comedy.
