Pegg pleased Cornetto at an end

Simon Pegg plays a Goth in The World's End

Simon Pegg has admitted he feels a proud sense of completion after finishing the last film in his "three flavours Cornetto" trilogy.

The Star Trek star has just finished filming The World's End with Edgar Wright and Nick Frost, the final film in their trilogy of satirical genre comedies, after Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz.

Simon - who revealed his hair was dyed black because he plays a Goth in the film - said: "It feels really good. It feels like we've finally completed something and I'm very happy to have done it and I want to hug Edgar a lot."

The Spaced star has recently finished filming Star Trek 2: Into The Darkness with JJ Abrams, who has just been signed up to direct the next Star Wars film.

Simon - who is a massive Star Wars fan - said: "I don't know if I'll be in it. It's so early on. I think people assume just because I work with JJ a lot and I'm a Star Wars fan, I'll be in it. That's not the case at all, there's not a script yet.

"I just can't wait to see because I know he's going to do a great job."

When the powers that be realise you mean business, they'll work hard to update the regulations. You'll make several new friends after getting involved with this cause.More
