Simon Pegg says The World’s End is his favourite movie in the Cornetto trilogy

But perhaps his most recognisable achievement is working with director Edgar Wright in the Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy.
Now Pegg has revealed which one of the three movies is his favourite.
“You know, my favourite of the Cornetto trilogy is The World’s End because it’s the least audience-friendly,” Pegg told DiscussingFilm.
“It’s the darkest of the three. It’s the most challenging, and I love the idea of actually putting the audience in a position where they have to feel a little bit uncomfortable and not necessarily cozy into the familiar.”
Pegg also told the publication that he and Wright will reunite at some point to work on another project.
"We’ve always done original ideas, even though we’ve kind of built them around existing genres or whatever. Edgar and I are always talking about what we’re going to do next. Neither of us can believe it’s been 10 years since The World’s End," he said.
"I’ll say this, it’s not about if but when we will do something, which we will do because we’ve already started talking about it."
Last year, Pegg said he couldn't wait to work with Wright and co-star Nick Frost again.
"We're talking about stuff, there's been ideas thrown around and we're circling something. But obviously he's really busy, I'm really busy. It's not like the old days when we were just trying to get seen and we had all that time. Now things are a little more complicated," he told ComicBook.com.
"But there's room in my heart for all that stuff and I obviously want to work with Edgar and Nick again because they're my mates and it means we get to hang out more."
The 53-year-old also told DiscussingFilm the new project wouldn't be another Cornetto movie.
"There are certain kinds of thematic consistencies between those three movies which make them a trilogy – it’s not just the ice cream, it’s a series of connecting thematic details. With what we do next, we want to be completely different from that," he said.
He added: "At the risk of disappointing people, we get a lot of requests to 'sequalise' all three of those movies. I feel like it’s a lazy impulse for people to embrace familiarity and just accept the same thing again.
"I’m very flattered by it, and it’s never anything but edifying to be to have people say, 'Oh, we would love to see more'. I get that! But what we really need is new stuff. We need new ideas.
"We need to be challenged."
