Martin Freeman Joins Edgar Wright’s ‘The World’s End’

Edgar Wright is bringing the whole gang back together in his final “Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy” film, “The World’s End.”

An official press release has gone out announcing that production has started on the movie and offering up the full cast for the flick. In addition to Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, we’ve learned that Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike have joined the project as well.

Consider us thrilled about this Freeman news. Fans will know that he’s been a regular in Wright’s trilogy, having a small but memorable part as Declan in “Shaun of the Dead” and playing the Met sergeant who transfers Pegg’s character to the country in “Hot Fuzz.” We can only imagine what role he’ll play here. Hopefully he’ll end up getting a little more screentime than he did in the past, considering he’s moved up a bit in the world thanks to leading roles in “The Hobbit” and BBC’s “Sherlock.”
