Edgar Wright - Nicest guy in Hollywood

Posted by websitesarelovely on Thursday, 8 March 2012

Back in January, my sister bought me tickets to the BFI screening of Shaun of the Dead - presented by Edgar Wright and friends - which just so happened to be on my birthday. I was over the moon.
Due to scheduling conflicts (Simon Pegg filming a little film called Star Trek 2) - Edgar was unable to make the screening back in the UK, as the pair of them were writing the 3rd film in The Cornetto Trilogy

They both did the Q&A session over Skype and it was great to hear the process of writing / directing and getting the film out to the audience, and it was great to see the film again on the big screen.

To cut a long story short, Edgar read that it was my birthday on Twitter, and as an apology for missing the screening he sent me a signed Scott Pilgrim poster! Another example of how he's got the reputation of being the nicest guy in Hollywood.

Thank you very much Edgar.
