Simon Pegg - The World's End is about 'morality'

Picture:

'The World's End' is about ''addiction'' and ''morality'', according to Simon Pegg.

The comedic actor-and-writer's upcoming offering differs from his previous hit films - 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Hot Fuzz' - and although the feature will have his iconic ''silliness'', Simon believes the themes are a lot more serious this time round.

He said: '''Shaun of the Dead' was about being in your late twenties and not getting on with your life. 'Hot Fuzz' was about guys having to become dumber than they really are in order to succeed. This film is about men in their forties. The themes of the movie are about addiction and getting older and morality. They're big themes, just wrapped up in lots of silliness.''

The film stars Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan and the actor's good friend and frequent co-star, Nick Frost, but Pegg admits his role is a lot different from the iconic zombie-killer Shaun and super-cop Nicholas Angel.

He added to SFX magazine: ''Gary King is a tragic figure in a way. He's deeply flawed and kind of sad in a way, albeit funny. He's like this weird gothic wraith from the past who re-enters these guys' lives.

''Gary's main purpose in life is to complete a pub crawl no matter what, and the no matter what becomes a giant, terrifying no matter what, but he still carries on with the pub crawl and manages to convince his friends that they should too.''
