2020 was supposed to mark the return of filmmaker Edgar Wright, after taking a break following 2017’s Baby Driver. Wright has been working on Last Night in Soho, co-written by Krysty Wilson-Cairns, and planned a Setempber release for his new horror movie. Now, Wright has confirmed that the film isn’t complete and announced to fans a new release date.
The Shaun of the Dead filmmaker took to his Twitter account to share a new still, as well as a new opening date:
Haunted by someone else’s past, but we’ll see you in the future… It’s true, #LastNightInSoho is not quite finished yet due to Covid 19. But, I'm excited for you all to experience it, at a big screen near you, on April 23, 2021. @LastNightInSoho @FocusFeatures @universaluk pic.twitter.com/zmPnAZICkb

Little is known about Last Night in Soho, though star Anna Taylor-Joy recently shared a little tease of the film’s tone: “Not to say much about the movie, but when I watch bits of it back in ADR or whatever I am disturbed. It’s very claustrophobic. The colors are so intense. It’s a really well-directed acid trip. I think people will really like it. You definitely will not be bored.”
Focus Features will release Last Night in Soho on April 23rd, 2021. The film will star Anya Taylor-Joy and Thomasin McKenzie as they explore London’s Soho district during the Swinging Sixties.
