A young girl, who is passionate about fashion design, mysteriously enters the 1960s, where she encounters her idol, a dazzling wannabe singer. But 1960s London is not what it seems, and time seems to fall apart with shady consequences.[2]




In January 2019, Edgar Wright said he would next work on a London set psychological horror film co written by Krysty Wilson-Cairns.[4][5]


Anya Taylor-Joy, Matt Smith and Thomasin McKenzie joined the next month,[6][7] followed by Diana Rigg, Terence Stamp, Rita Tushingham, Michael Ajao and Synnøve Karlsen in June.[8]


Filming began on May 23, 2019, and wrapped August 30, 2019.[9] The film is said to be inspired by other British horror films, such as Nicolas Roeg's Don't Look Now and Roman Polanski's Repulsion, with Wright mentioning the film's use of time travel.[10] Wright posted several photos in his Instagram account regarding additional filming commenced on June 24, 2020 and wrapped on August 5, 2020.[11][12][13][14]


Last Night in Soho is scheduled to be released on April 23, 2021.[15] It was previously scheduled to be released on September 25, 2020, but it was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[16]
