About edgarwright

Edgar Wright has evolved from a young film geek wanting to prove himself to one of the most sought-after geeks working in film today. Raised in Somerset, England, as a young teenager he embarked on making short films with a Super 8 camera. Mr. Wright gained notice in the U.K. when he directed the two seasons of Spaced for Channel 4. The series starred and was written by Simon Pegg and Jessica Hynes. The series served as a launching pad for the 2004 movie Shaun of the Dead, which Mr. Wright directed and co-wrote with Simon Pegg. It was followed by the action comedy Hot Fuzz. Mr. Wright directed the faux trailer “Don’t" for Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s epic Grindhouse; and, for producer Peter Jackson and director Steven Spielberg, co-wrote The Adventures of Tintin with Steven Moffat and Joe Cornish. His next feature as director was Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, based on the graphic novels of Bryan Lee O’Malley. His upcoming projects include the long-awaited screen incarnation of Marvel Comics’ Ant-Man for Marvel Studios. In 2011, Mr. Wright was honored with the Empire Awards’ Inspiration Award.
