Comic-Con 2006: Don't Hold Your Breath on a "Shaun of the Dead" Sequel

As much as we all adore "Shaun of the Dead" and would love to get another scoop, director Edgar Wright doesn’t seem too keen on the idea. With "Hot Fuzz" and "Ant-Man" on the horizon, the filmmaker doesn’t look to be repeating himself yet.

From IGN FilmForce: "At a panel at this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con, Director Edgar Wright dispelled rumors of a possible "Shaun of the Dead 2," long rumored to be subtitled "From Dusk ‘Til Shaun." Nick Frost added his own humorous title: "Night of the Living Ed." However, humorous titles aside, it looks like the sequel will not be happening. "Shaun of the Dead 2 seems unlikely," Wright said. "We don’t want to do a cash-in."

"Hot Fuzz" reunites Wright with his pals Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, and it hits theaters next February. (Check out the production diaries right here!) After that, Mr. Wright will direct "Ant-Man" for Marvel, and that should make for a pretty interesting flick.
