Some awesome actors have been cast for The World’s End and filming began today!

Martin Freeman (The Hobbit), Paddy Considine (The Bourne Ultimatum), Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes) and Rosamund Pike (Jack Reacher) have joined the upcoming film, The World’s End! Edgar Wright is directing the film, which is the third in Wright’s triology of comedies. The first two were Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are also starring.

IMDb provides the awesome plot description: “20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub, The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.”

Filming begins today in the U.K.! Are you excited for The World’s End, which hits theaters in August 2013?
