First Poster For Edgar Wright's THE WORLD'S END
So, the news out of Comic-Con is that Edgar Wright's The World's End - his third film with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost - has officially received the green light. This is fabulous and all, but hardly news given that everybody has known it was going to shoot in the fall for a couple months now.

No, the fun bit of the news comes in the form of the first official poster for the film, one which includes the list of pubs involved in Wright et al's epic pub crawl.

20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub, The World's End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind's. Reaching The World's End is the least of their worries.
What say you, London folk? Are these real pubs? Are you tempted to do the crawl yourself? And, more to the point, while Pegg and Frost are clearly going to be two of the three crawlers now would appear to be the time to figure out who the others are. And here are my completely uneducated guesses:

First, you absolutely cannot - or, at least, this particular group absolutely cannot - do a drinking movie with Dylan Moran. They're tight, they've worked together repeatedly in the past and drinking is totally Moran's thing. He's got to be in. And, knowing that they like to keep it in the family, I have to presume that they'll at least be making the call to find out if Peter Serafinowicz is available, too. If those two are correct, that leaves spot number five. Oh, number five. Reece Shearsmith or one of the other League of Gentlemen boys may be an option, but in my perfect world it would be one of Chris Morris, Chris O'Dowd, Richard Ayoade, Matt Berry or Julian Barratt.

You paying attention Edgar? Make it happen!
