Simon Pegg Paul World Premiere 220x150 Simon Pegg to Star in A Fantastic Fear of EverythingWe’ve just been sent over the following press release alerting us to the fact that the legendary Simon Pegg will be starring in new movie, A Fantastic Fear of Everything which started shooting 6th July in London and at Shepperton Studios.

This is the first project for Pinewood Studio Group in their new ‘Pinewood Films’ venture which we reported on a while back. It’s all very exciting for them and we’re so pleased to see their first film is now fully on the road. Pegg is joined by Alan Drake, Amara Khan, Clare Higgins and Sheridan Smith and the film is the debut feature of former Kula Shaker frontman Crispian Mills, the son of director Roy Boulting and actress Hayley Mills, and whose grandfather was the late Sir John Mills.

Jack (Simon Pegg) is 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.

Read on for more info. We’re looking forward to this one – why? Because it has Simon Pegg in it of course!
