Edgar Wright - Rosamund Pike Met With Edgar Wright's Ex-girlfriend For Movie Role

Subscribe to Edgar Wright alerts

Director Edgar Wright sent Rosamund Pike out for dinner with his ex-girlfriend so the actress would have a better understanding of the role she plays in his new film The World's End.

Pike's character in the film, Sam, is inspired by Wright's former partner from more than 20 years ago, named only as Steph, so the director/writer agreed to put the women in touch so the actress could discuss the part with her.

Wright has revealed the pair went out to dinner together, but he decided he was better off not knowing what they talked about.

He tells the London Evening Standard, "I don't know what they talked about and I'm not sure I want to know but Ros came back and told me, 'Yeah, I get it.'"

The film, which stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, is the third film in their unofficial comedy trilogy after Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, and is due for release in the U.K. later this month (Jul13) and in America in August (13).
