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.
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.*
