Details of Hot Fuzz from the team behind Shaun of the Dead
3rd Mar 06
No, itís not really horror, sci-fi, fantasy or thriller related, but we just canít help reporting on the news that the latest Working Title production will be Hot Fuzz from the brains behind the classic comedy Shaun of the Dead, director Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg.
Seeing as this website started as a result of the three of us meeting onset as zombie extras on Shaun of the Dead, we are doubly thrilled that Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg (along with Nick Frost) are reteaming for a new UK comedy.
And with other cast names confirmed including Steve Coogan, Jim Broadbent, Timothy Dalton, Edward Woodward, Paul Freeman (Belloq from Raiders Of The Lost Ark), Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Bill Bailey, Rafe Spall, Billie Whitelaw and Anne Reid, we can safely say we just cannot wait for this one to hit the cinemas.
"Police constable Nicholas Angel (Pegg) is good at his job; so good in fact, he makes everyone else look bad. As a result, his superiors at the Met have decided to sweep him under the carpet. So it is that London's top cop finds himself in the sleepy West Country village of Sandford.
With garden fetes and neighbourhood watch meetings replacing the action of the city, Angel struggles to adapt to his situation and finds himself partnered with Danny Butterman (Frost), an oafish but well meaning young Constable, who dreams of being Mel Gibson. Just as all seems lost, a series of grisly accidents motivates Angel into action. Convinced of foul play, Angel realises that Sandford may not be as idyllic as it seems."
Hot Fuzz will start shooting on March 15th and is being produced Nira Park, Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, with Working Titleís Natascha Wharton as exec producer..
