Edgar Wright was speaking to fans in a Yahoo! Q&A session on Friday (May 24) about the upcoming comedy The World's End, the final edition of the much-loved Cornetto trilogy. The filmmaker revealed a few details on the summer release, including the news that there is a special, mystery cameo appearance has been lined-up for audiences.

Wright didn't go into much detail about the planned cameo, wanting to keep it a secret for the movie launch. He mentioned that although long-time collaborator and friend Jessica Hynes, who co-wrote and starred in Spaced with The World's End star Simon Pegg, will not be appearing in the final instalment of the Cornetto series, "there are other cameos. Including a man that has yet to appear in the films."

Alongside Pegg and Cornetto favourite Nick Frost, the film also stars long-time collaborators Martin Freeman (who has featured in all three films), Rafe Spall and Paddy Considine (of Hot Fuzz fame) as well as Eddie Marsan and former Bond girl Rosamund Pike. The movie follows a group of childhood friends who over the years have drifted apart but decide that after 20 years they are to recreate an 'epic pub crawl' in their hometown that bested them first time. As drinking commences though, the group notice a that things aren't quite right and soon things take a turn for the worse and get a little post-apocalyptic, resulting in the boys becoming Earth's only hope for survival.

The World's End will hit UK cinemas on July 19, a month earlier than was originally scheduled. The movie will be out on the originally planned August date worldwide.
