Edgar Wright and Nick Frost – Exclusive Video Interview

     July 25, 2007

Around 10am this morning I was at the Four Season hotel in Beverly Hills getting ready to sit down with Edgar Wright and Nick Frost – two of the brilliant people behind one of the best films of the year, “Hot Fuzz.”

The reason they were giving interviews was to help raise awareness of next week’s release of the DVD, and that’s also the main reason the two of them are also going to Comic-Con tomorrow.

Needless to say I’m a huge fan of their work and cannot recommend “Hot Fuzz” enough. And if you think I’m the only one who loves the film, I encourage you to check out any other website and you’ll see it’s one of the best reviewed films of the year.

Since it was only a short time ago that both were in Los Angeles and talking about “Hot Fuzz,” I tried to cover other things like what they’re doing at Comic-Con and what each of them have coming up next.

From what I gathered, both are busy writing and are being very careful about saying too much on what their next project might be. While that might disappoint fans right now, I’m sure when the time is right they’ll reveal everything.

Anyway, posted below is the almost 6 minute interview. We covered:

  • What’s on the DVD.
  • Nick then asks Edgar, “you’ve done zombies, you’ve done cops…what’s next!”
  • I ask about comic con and their plans.
  • what’s the most unusual thing they’ve signed as an autograph.
  • I ask what they’re working on now as “Hot Fuzz” wrapped awhile ago… the answer is Nick and Simon are writing something right now and Edgar and Simon will be writing something this fall.
  • I try and pin Edgar down a bit on what he’s working on next and he wouldn’t drop any hint of what’s the next project…just that he’s working on a few things.

Since the two of them are going to Comic-Con tomorrow and will be doing more press and signing autographs… perhaps they’ll drop a bit more info on what’s coming up. If they do, I’ll be sure to update all of you.

And now… here’s the interview. Expect a ton of Comic-Con updates starting tomorrow.
