Having first won over theatrical audiences with SHAUN OF THE
DEAD, British actor Simon Pegg is getting scared again in a new comedy called A
FANTASTIC FEAR OF EVERYTHING, which is currently shooting at Pinewood
Variety reports that Pegg stars in
the film as a children’s-book author who has turned to crime fiction, and whose
research into Victorian serial killers has turned him paranoid, terrified that
someone will try to kill him. His condition only gets worse when Hollywood
comes calling to bring one of his projects to the screen. Directed (with Chris
Hopewell) and written by feature first-timer Crispian Mills, son of actress
Hayley Mills and former frontman of the indie rock band Kula Shaker, the
$4.9-million-budgeted FANTASTIC FEAR is the first film to receive financing
from the new Pinewood Films, with Indomina Releasing (which will release the
movie Stateside) and Universal Pictures (which will handle UK, Germany,
Australia and Latin American territories) also backing the project. The cast
additionally includes Amara Karan (seen in this week’s After Dark/Lionsgate DVD
release THE TASK), HELLRAISER’s Clare Higgins, Sheridan Smith and Alan Drake.
