“Once upon a time in a 60’s telephone booth... haunted by someone else’s past, but we’ll see you in the future...” her caption reads.

The film, which also stars Thomasin McKenzie, Diana Rigg and Terrence Stamp, has been written by Wright with 1917 co-writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns.

In 2019 Wilson-Cairns told Yahoo that Edgar Wright fans will be pleased with the film.

“[Last Night in Soho] is fun, it’s dark, it’s twisted, it’s thrilling, it’s everything you want from an Edgar Wright movie, and something really different,” the screenwriter said.

“I’ve seen early cuts of it and I was blown away by it.”

Last Night In Soho comes to cinemas in 2021.
