Filming is officially underway on Edgar Wright’s six feature film.
Production has began on Last Night in Soho, the next movie from the Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Baby Driver helmer. Wright took to social media to share a number of images as cameras began rolling – just don’t be expecting much in the way of cast pics or plot revelations with them. Although… perhaps there are some hints there.
Before we get into what we do know, check out the shot of the film’s logo shared by Big Talk Productions’ Rachel Prior…
And Wright’s postings…
Alas, there are no plot details to go on at this time – apart from it being set in the titular London town. The film is being described as a psychological horror-thriller, a film to be influenced by thrillers such as Don’t Look Now and Roman Polanski’s Repulsion.
Leading the cast is Anya Taylor-Joy, who’s delivered strong turns in films like The Witch and Split. The cast thus far also includes Matt Smith (Doctor Who, The Crown) and rising New Zealand actress Thomasin McKenzie (Leave No Trace).
Wright has written Last Night in Soho’s screenplay alongside Krysty Wilson-Cairns, who was a staff writer on horror series Penny Dreadful and has also co-written Sam Mendes’ WWI film 1917. She’s about to become a much bigger name. Also of note is the inclusion of cinematographer Chung Chung-hoon, whose credits include Park Chan-wook films Oldboy and The Handmaiden, as well as It.
