Director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Baby Driver) has teased his next feature film, Last Night in Soho, will offer a different experience compared to his previous films.
“It will feel very different to my other films,” Wright revealed to Empire. “But I’ve always liked films which have a slow burn into something else, and a lot of my movies have that feeling. Last Night starts in a more psychological realm and then starts to get increasingly intense as it goes along. And I always like to gravitate towards making a film in genres I miss, and there’s a certain type of psychological horror film that you got more in the ‘60s and ‘70s, that have something of an operatic nature. I’m using that kind of visual grammar.”
Unfortunately, audiences are going to have to wait a while longer to watch Wright’s latest film as it was recently announced Last Night in Soho was pulled from its original September 25th 2020 release date after having its post-production affected by the ongoing global health crisis. According to the director, the film will now debut on April 23rd, 2021.
While plot details for Last Night in Soho are being kept tightly under wraps, star Anya Taylor-Joy has teased Wright’s take on London’s Soho district during the 1960s.
Edgar Wright has co-written the script for the film with Krysty Wilson-Cairns (Penny Dreadful). The cast includes Anya Taylor-Joy (Glass), Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie (Leave NoTrace), Matt Smith (Doctor Who), Michael Ajao (Attack the Block), Synnøve Karlsen, Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones), Terence Stamp (The Adventures of Priscila, Queen of the Desert), and Rita Tushingham (My Name is Lenny).
