Simon Pegg & Nick Frost Interview - The World's End
Simon Pegg & Nick Frost Interview - The World's End
Congratulations on the film. It’s a great end to the trilogy, and surely the best lamp joke since Anchorman.

Simon Pegg (SP)

Thank you very much

We’ve been pretty lucky with you guys coming all the way to New Zealand with Hot Fuzz in 2007, and more recently Paul. Why New Zealand?

Nick Frost (NF)

We weren’t originally coming to New Zealand, but you can’t just come to Australia. It would be bonkers to come all that way just to go to Sydney and think that that covers New Zealand as well. So between the three of us agreed that we should come down.

SP

It has a special place in our hearts as well because of Peter Jackson who was a great supporter of ours in the early days, he’s become a good friend… I mean he’s in Hot Fuzz… We did a Hot Fuzz tour here a few years back, so it would have seemed odd not to have come here. The fact that we’re only here for 20 hours demonstrates how important New Zealand is to us.

NF

It is so far away as well. New Zealand can’t get any further away from the UK. If it was any further.

SP

Considering the next bit of land after the South Island is Antarctica, it IS The World’s End.

NF

Or is it the World’s Beginning?

SP

Hello!

NF

We’ll be right back.

You guys haven’t actually made a film here yet. Is that something that may change soon?

SF

Oh we’d never shoot here! (laughs). No, you know what, that’s something that’s very much on the cards. We’ve got a Tintin coming up which Peter will direct, so it seems very likely that we’ll end up shooting that here. So hold tight, we’ll be here… hanging out… get it ready for us!
