Edgar Wright: Next Horror Project Untitled but Inspired by Don’t Look Now

Edgar Wright of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, and Baby Driver fame mentions in an article by Empire that his next project will be a psychological horror film based in London and inspired by Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now and Roman Polanski’s Repulsion. It will also have a female lead.

In the article Edgar Wright is quoted as saying, “I realized 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. 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.”
