Edgar Wright 'spoke to Diana Rigg as much as my own mother' during lockdown

Edgar Wright doesn’t do things by halves. In his new horror/thriller, Last Night In Soho, he brought the revolutionary 60s back to life, with the help of three acting icons from the decade – Dame Diana Rigg (in her last film role), Terence Stamp and Rita Tushingham.  The Cornetto Trilogy director cast them all in key roles and, in an exclusive interview for Yahoo, revealed how he became close friends with Diana Rigg during the making of the film.  Last Night In Soho arrives in UK cinemas on 29 October.
