As a teenager in England, Edgar Wright started making short comedy films after winning a video camera in a competition. At 20, he directed the no-budget western A Fistful of Fingers (1995). This led to a foray into television, directing comedy shows for the BBC and Paramount Comedy Channel. He also directed two seasons of Channel 4′s cult classic Spaced. In 2004, Wright directed Shaun of the Dead, the first film in his Cornetto Trilogy. Shaun was followed by Hot Fuzz in 2007 and The World’s End in 2013. The three films combined have amassed a box office of over $150 million. Wright also directed Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (2010), which he co-wrote with Michael Bacall; co-wrote Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin (2010); and directed the faux trailer Don’t for Quentin Tarantino’s and Robert Rodriguez’s Grindhouse (2007). Upcoming projects include Baby Driver for Working Title, Collider for Bad Robot, and Grasshopper Jungle for Sony.
