Director Edgar Wright has tweeted the first Last Night in Soho photo and confirmed that principal filming has wrapped. “That is a wrap on main unit photography on my next feature film, ‘Last Night in Soho’. Can’t wait for you all to see [Last Night in Soho] on a big screen near you, September 25th, 2020.”
Last Night in Soho is a forthcoming British “straight-up psychological horror thriller” directed by Edgar Wright (The World’s End; Hot Fuzz; Shaun of the Dead). No plot details have been released yet. Wright and Krysty Wilson-Cairns (Penny Dreadful) co-wrote the screenplay.
Wright has commented: “I realised I had never made a film about central London – specifically Soho, somewhere I’ve spent a huge amount of time in the last twenty-five years. With Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead you make movies about places you’ve lived in. This movie is about the London I’ve existed in.”
The movie stars Anya Taylor-Joy (The New Mutants; Morgan), Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie (Leave NoTrace), Matt Smith (Morbius; Charlie Says; Doctor Who), Michael Ajao (Attack the Block), Synnøve Karlsen , Diana Rigg (Theatre of Blood), Terence Stamp (Crow; Link) and Rita Tushingham (Straight on Till Morning).
The film was co-financed by Focus Features and Film4. Wright is co-producing with Nira Park, Tim Bevan, and Eric Fellner.
Focus Features recently confirmed that Last Night in Soho will have its theatrical debut on 25th September 2020. Universal Pictures International will distribute the film worldwide.
Edgar Wright’s last movie Baby Driver took an impressive $227 million worldwide at the box office.
