Speaking to Empire earlier this year, Wright teased his intention to make Last Night In Soho, returning to home soil after the Atlanta, Georgia setting of Baby Driver. “I realised I had never made a film about central London – specifically Soho, somewhere I’ve spent a huge amount of time in the last 25 years,” he explained. “With Hot Fuzz and Shaun Of The Dead you make movies about places you’ve lived in. This movie is about the London I’ve existed in.” Wright also listed Don’t Look Now and Repulsion as influences on this one.

Wright’s cinematographer on this one is Chung-hoon Chung – a regular collaborator of Park Chan-Wook, who shot Oldboy, Thirst, Stoker, and The Handmaiden with the Korean auteur, among others. Wright co-wrote the film with Krysty Wilson-Cairns, and the project’s cast is led by modern-day scream queen Anya Taylor-Joy – joined on screen by the likes of Matt Smith and Leave No Trace’s Thomasin McKenzie.

No talk about this? It's premiering at TIFF, and the Trailer looks interesting:

Edgar Wright’s psychological thriller about a young girl, passionate in fashion design, who is mysteriously able to enter the 1960s where she encounters her idol, a dazzling wannabe singer. But 1960s London is not what it appears, and time seems to fall apart with shady consequences…

Dang, no matter how it ends up hitting (Baby Driver iz fun fluff, somehow I find Spaced + Hot Fuzz to have more substance, although they are really meta-texts on entertainment, Scott Pilgrim iz unmatched as Grand Pop-Art) -- I suspect this plot will be ripe for analyzing along the linez of Mark Fisher's hauntology + lost futurez.


This looks fun, v. Suspiria/Repulsion inspired. Will be cool to see Terence Stamp, Rita Tushingham and Diana Rigg (RIP) in a 60s set film, he always has great casting choices.

As much as I like Edgar Wright, I don't feel he's the right guy to pull such stuff off, the trailer seems like walking the line between self-seriousness and intentional cheesy. I guess the script he co-write with Krysty Wilson-Cairns (she was apparently in the writing team of Penny Dreadful's final season) will have more of her input than his.

I see. Either I'm bad at navigating the forum, or I miss these things when they pop up (perhaps a bit of both, and those are not mutually exclusive either and probably related).

Haha, all good! Part of that fault's on me probably for putting it in the Director's thread rather than the Film's.

I'm trying to better organize where I post, after a recent dope discussion on this same organizational topic.
