Martin Freeman cast in The World’s End

Via Empire Online, Martin Freeman has been cast in The World’s End, the upcoming film directed by Edgar Wright and starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. The film forms the third part of the loosely described ‘Three Flavours Trilogy’, alongside Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Martin appeared in small roles in both earlier films. 

Martin joins Pegg, Frost, Eddie Marsan (Lestrade in the Warner Bros Holmes films) and Paddy Considine as five childhood friends who reunite, 20 years after taking on the mother of all pub crawls, to attempt it again. Only this time, it coincides with an event that may just be the apocalypse - can the quintet make it to The World’s End pub before the world ends?

Filming is expected to begin within the next month, and the film will release in the UK on August 14 2013.
