  • Pre-production began in October 2013 after being put on hold so that Wright could complete The World’s End.
  • Casting began in December 2013, with the hiring of Rudd to play Lang. In May 2014, Wright left the project citing creative differences, though he still received screenplay and story credits with Cornish.
