Hello my friends!

The two horror-comedy icons from arguably some of the most entertaining films of the past decade and a half are stepping into the production side of things. And yes, referring to Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as "icons" is fair, so shove it.

Pegg and Frost, most famously known as the faces of Edgar Wright's Cornetto Trilogy, have started their own film and TV production company, Stolen Picture. Better yet is they've already got their first project all lined up and it's bound to tickle our collective fancies. The horror-comedy, Slaughterhouse Rulez, has been announced as the first offering from Stolen Picture. I've got to say, I'm more than intrigued in this movie01. especially given the synopsis. Check it out. 

Slaughterhouse Rulez is set in an elite boarding school – Welcome to Slaughterhouse – where boys and girls are groomed for power and greatness and they’re about to meet their match. The story’s hero, Don Wallace, is a wide-eyed new boy from a modest background forced to navigate a baffling new world of arcane rules and rituals, presided by sadistic sixth formers. Matters of status are aggressively enforced and conversation with school goddess Clemsie, are strictly forbidden.

But this ancient and ordered world is about to be shaken to its foundations – literally – when a controversial frack site on prize school woodland causes seismic tremors, a mysterious sinkhole and an unspeakable horror is unleashed. Soon a new pecking order will be established as pupils, teachers and the school matron become locked in a bloody battle for survival.

Basically, Shaun of the Dead meets Cooties with a dash of 80s loser nerd turned hero comedy and I'm more than OK with that. Slaughterhouse Rulez is being executively produced by Frost and Pegg, and it is being directed/co-written by Crispian Mills, who wrote and directed the highly-underrated Simon Pegg movie, A Fantastic Fear of Everything. Henry Fitzherbert (Born a King) is co-writing the script with Mills. 

All in all, I think any project coming out of Stolen Picture will be a slice of fried gold. *Apologies. I actually could not help myself.*
