Edgar Wright vs. The Pentaveret

Hey guys, it's Donnie...Well, it's a well known fact, Sunny Jim, that there's a secret society of the five wealthiest people in the world, known as The Pentaveret, who run everything in the world, including the newspapers, and meet tri-annually at a secret country mansion in Colorado, known as The Meadows. So who's in this Pentaveret? The Queen, The Vatican, The Gettys, The Rothschilds, and Colonel Sanders before he went tits up. Oh, I hated the Colonel with is wee beady eye! And that smug look on his face, "Oh, you're gonna buy my chicken! Ohhhhh!"

Sorry about that. Had to be done.

Ya see, the latest addition to the list of Edgar Wright's possible follow up films to Shaun Of The Dead is Them, an adaptation of the novel by Jon Ronson, whose name sounds like it was arranged in the wrong order. The book chronicles Ronson's humorous interactions with the members of numerous political and sociological fringe groups, the the Ku Klux Clain to Scientologists, in an effort to get closer to The Bilderberg Group, the "real leaders of the world". The movie, to be written by Mike White (School of Rock) and produced but not starring (for now) by Jack Black and their Black and White Production company, will fictionalize the novel into one woman's quest to find the secret rulers of the world, and it sure to be freakin' hilarious.

Between this, Ant-Man, and the number of other projects that Wright has lined up, it looks like everybody wins, including we lucky members of the film-going public.

I stopped reading your article as soon as you got to the Colonel Sanders part. It's before he went tits up, not heads up!

my most profound apologies. I actually know the quote, I just copy pasted from IMDB because I was in a bit of a rush at the time. The mistake has been corrected. Thanks for the input.
