Simon Pegg to star in new dark comedy ‘A Fantastic Fear of Everything’

With Star Trek 2 currently on hold, Simon Pegg has recently signed on to star in a new dark comedy written and co-directed by former Kula Shaker frontman Crispian Mills. Chris Hopewell also co-directs A Fantastic Fear of Everything, an interesting sounding comedy which should use Pegg’s unique comedy to full advantage, here are the plot details:

Simon Pegg plays Jack, a children’s author turned crime novelist whose detailed research into the lives of Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck, persecuted by the irrational fear of being murdered.  When Jack is thrown a life-line by his long-suffering agent and a mysterious Hollywood executive takes a sudden and inexplicable interest in his script, what should be his ‘big break’ rapidly turns into his ‘big breakdown’, as Jack is forced to confront his worst demons; among them his love life, his laundry and the origin of all fear.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
