Biography:

Edgar Howard Wright (born 18 April 1974) is an English director, screenwriter and producer. He began making independent short films before making his first feature film "A Fistful of Fingers" (1995). Wright created and directed the comedy series "Asylum" in 1996, written with David Walliams. After directing several other television shows, Wright directed the sitcom "Spaced"(1999–2001), which aired for two series and starred Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. In 2004, Wright directed "Shaun of the Dead," the first film in what would come to be called the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy. "Shaun of the Dead" starred Pegg and Frost and was co-written with Pegg—as were the next two entries in the trilogy, "Hot Fuzz" (2007) and "The World's End" (2013). In 2010, Wright co-wrote, produced, and directed the comedy action film "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World." Along with Joe Cornish and Steven Moffat, he co-wrote Steven Spielberg's "The Adventures of Tintin" (2011). After completing the Cornetto trilogy, Wright went on to direct the action film "Baby Driver" (2017) and the psychological thriller "Last Night in Soho" (2021). Wright has directed numerous music videos, including The Bluetones' "Keep the Home Fires Burning" (2000), The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster's "Psychosis Safari" (2002), Mint Royale's "Blue Song" (2002), Pharrell Williams' "Gust of Wind" (2014), and Beck's "Colors" (2018).
