Edgar Wright's next production has found a distribution home with Universal Studios. Kudos to Universal for doing so, since the last Edgar Wright film that they were involved with was Scott Pilgrim vs the World. Although Scott Pilgrim was not only my favourite film of 2010 and one of my all time favourites, it did not make any money. The film joins the like of Citizen Kane, Fantasia and Fight club as amazing, ground-breaking, fan favourite film that turned into box office poison. And since film studios like making money, you would think that Universal might want to distance itself from another Edgar Wright offering.

It's so rare to be happy about something that Hollywood has done, so it's nice to see the powers-that-be care about quality over box office every so often.
