THE release date of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s eagerly-awaited movie The World’s End, which was filmed in Letchworth GC, has been announced.

Written by actor Simon Pegg and director Edgar Wright, the apocalyptic comedy is due to hit the screens in the UK on August 14.

The movie – the third and final part of Pegg and Wright’s ‘Three Flavours Cornetto’ or ‘Blood and Ice Cream’ trilogy, following box office smashes Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz – was shot on location in Letchworth GC last year.

The World’s End stars Pegg, as Gary King and sees five childhood friends reunite and try to attempt again an epic pub crawl through their home town of Newton Haven.

When they were teenagers, the gang only managed nine of the 12 pubs on the list.
