Nick Frost Trolls Fans Hard with Fake Hot Fuzz 2 Announcement
Nick Frost has drawn the audience hard this afternoon, pointing out that a sequel to Hot Fuzz had been confirmed. Frost posted a photo of himself, Simon Pegg, and Edgar Wright on social media, with a hashtag indicating that the sequel had been green, causing fans to lose their minds on the Internet. However, once Frost’s management was contacted, they claimed that it did not happen. Frost then returned to his original post to make a clever montage.
To clarify, Hot Fuzz 2 does not occur. Nick Frost admitted that he was just having fun with everyone in a follow-up post. Regarding the original message, Frost changed it to say: “A little confusion, Hashtag should have read … Hot Fuzz Two unenlightened, we have lunch together. “Most fans have found the message funny, but many are very angry at Frost for playing with everyone’s emotions. Later, he posted another picture in which he was simply saying, “When you heard people’s minds about HF2! Peace!”
Edgar Wright recently raised the possibility of a Hot Fuzz sequel and noted that he had ideas. Apparently, the director was misquoted, because he claims never to have made these comments, saying that he would not even know where to take the next since the first has collected everything and said everything. He then said, “So, the thing is like, when is this your starting point for the next, where are you going from there?” This is understandable, but fans would like to see a Hot Fuzz 2.
