Up next from Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Baby Driver) is the psychological horror movie Last Night in Soho, which Focus Features is now releasing on April 23, 2021.
Last Night in Soho, starring Anya Taylor-Joy and Thomasin McKenzie, is set in London’s Soho district during the Swinging Sixties, and there seems to be a time travel element involved.
Speaking with Empire recently, Wright teased a “very different” sort of movie.
“It will feel very different to my other films,” Wright told Empire. “But I’ve always liked films which have a slow burn into something else, and a lot of my movies have that feeling.”
He continued, “Last Night starts in a more psychological realm and then starts to get increasingly intense as it goes along. And I always like to gravitate towards making a film in genres I miss, and there’s a certain type of psychological horror film that you got more in the ‘60s and ‘70s, that have something of an operatic nature. I’m using that kind of visual grammar.”
Wright wrote the script with Krysty Wilson-Cairns (“Penny Dreadful”).
