Pegg and Frost Post Updated ‘Shaun of the Dead’ Scene as Current PSA

During this time of uncertainty, the folks behind the zombie comedy classic Shaun of the Dead are here to brighten everyone’s day.  And exactly what we need in a prolonged period of social distancing are more things to help us smile.

In a post on the ‘Stolen Picture’ YouTube channel entitled “The Plan,” stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reprise their roles as reluctant hero Shaun and best friend Ed to reenact an iconic scene from the 2004 British hit.  While laying out their “battle plan”, the duo continually run into issues due to the ever-tightening restrictions placed on society, forcing them to revise their tactics.  A few of the 180’s suggested that deviate from the film are “Don’t go to Liz’s” and  “Don’t go to the Winchester”, as well as an opportunity to atone for a homophobic slur previously uttered that just doesn’t fly in 2020.  The full video post can be viewed below. read more

Trailer for Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s New Horror Comedy ‘Slaughterhouse Rulez’ Debuts

Horror fans are very familiar with the antics of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, primarily through Edgar Wright’s Shaun of the Dead and the rest of his “Cornetto Trilogy” (including Hot Fuzz and The World’s End.)

Although Wright doesn’t have any involvement in their latest collaboration, the boarding school horror comedy Slaughterhouse Rulez, the trailer seems to include a lot of what fans would expect from the duo.  Pegg and Frost are joined by Michael Sheen and Asa Butterfield in the film, directed by  Crispian Mills (who previously worked with Pegg on 2012’s A Fantastic Fear of Everything).  read more

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Developing Paranormal Comedy Series ‘Truth Seekers’

Horror fan favorites Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) are developing a paranormal “monster of the week” comedy entitled Truth Seekers through their new production company Stolen Picture, which is also backed by Sony Television.

In an exclusive interview with Variety, Pegg stated that “Each episode is going to be an adventure, a potential haunting or something.  It’ll start as a very parochial idea, a very small business venture for these people, but it will expand as the series goes on to be something far more global. It’s a language everyone understands, the mystery of the unknown.  Shaun of the Dead was a very parochial story set in North London and somehow it managed to get this global reach because everyone understands the language of zombie movies.” read more
