Edgar Wright’s ‘Last Night in Soho’ Will Release September 25, 2020

Aug 7, 2019


‘Last Night in Soho,’ the next film from director Edgar Wright (‘Shaun of the Dead,’ ‘Baby Driver’) now has a release date of September 25, 2020.

Moreover, the cast comprises of:

  • Anya Taylor-Joy (‘Thoroughbreds,’ ‘Glass’)
  • Thomasin McKenzie (‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,’ ‘Leave No Trace’)
  • Diana Rigg (‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Victoria’)
  • Matt Smith (‘Doctor Who,’ ‘The Crown’)
  • Terence Stamp (‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,’ ‘Murder Mystery’)

Meanwhile, the film is a psychological horror-thriller, with Nicolas Roeg’s ‘Don’t Look Now’ and Roman Polanski’s ‘Repulsion’ stated as influences.

Wright had this to say on the project:

“I realised 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.”

Also, Collider recently gave some details regarding the setting and characters:

“The film will take place in two different time periods — the ’60s and modern day. Taylor-Joy will play the lead in the ’60s, while McKenzie will play a fashion student in modern day scenes, according to sources. I hear Smith will be playing Taylor-Joy’s manager of sorts, though it’s unclear whether that makes her an actress, a singer or something else entirely.”

Filming is nearly complete in London, England, as the wrap date is August 9th.
