Gallery: Cameras roll in Letchworth for Simon Pegg and Nick Frost film

THE cameras were rolling in Letchworth GC on Monday for a new film starring Hollywood actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.

The duo did not appear on set but director Edgar Wright was calling the shots for The World’s End, a feature film which follows hit movies Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.

The production team filmed in several locations throughout the day including Leys Avenue, Broadway and Meadow Way.

The World’s End centres on five childhood friends who reunite for an epic pub crawl and one scene saw five actors – with two possibly playing younger versions of Mr Pegg and Mr Frost – striding down Broadway.

The two Hollywood stars did make an appearance in Welwyn Garden City though, where a preshoot was held last Thursday.
