Shaun of the Dead 2? Batman/Puerto Rico Auction Happening and More! – ComicCorp News

Was There a “Shaun of the Dead 2” Coming? – Simon Pegg has gained a lot of notoriety over his ability to lampoon popular film genres with Nick Frost and others. The first of these films is the wildly popular “Shaun of the Dead”. The film was rumored to have a sequel follow up but now Pegg is putting those rumors to bed once and for all, saying;

I jokingly wrote a treatment for From Dusk Till Shaun, which was a sequel to Shaun of the Dead. It was all about Shaun and Ed having to go up to Edinburgh, or something. I don’t know. It was ridiculous. And it was a joke. It wasn’t like a serious pitch. Edgar thought it would be funny to do the film again, but with vampires.

Edgar Wright, the director these films, went to address this himself, saying;

There was a brief idea we had, that we entertained for all of like 72 hours, where I thought you could do an alternate reality sequel. It basically starts with the same movie but then it becomes not about zombies. But these films, they take three years. So, it’s like, if you’re doing another movie, let’s do something completely different.
