Simon Pegg Nick Frost

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, your favorite UK duo from Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz are teaming back up. This time around they’ll be writing the screenplay as well as starring in their upcoming comedy, “Paul”. MTV spoke with Pegg for some details:

While the details were few and far between from Pegg, he did reveal the title and a little of the plot. “It’s called ‘Paul’ and it’s a road movie about two British geeks in America.” Pegg added that the film will be shot here in the States.

So will we see a similar dynamic between Simon and Nick as depicted in “Shaun” and Hot Fuzz”? Pegg laughed said, “No, it’s different actually. I’m the bitch in this one. This time Simon’s the bitch!”

It’ll definitely be interesting to see how their dynamic works when turned around. I’ll be glad for Frost to get a chance in the driver’s seat as he’s often the scene stealer.

In terrifying Simon Pegg news I learned that Pegg will be teaming up with Kirsten “Snaggletooth” Dunst for another project, “How to Lose Friends and Alienate People.” I’ll be sad to have to pass on a Pegg movie, but at least they did the casting right as Dunst has proved having the Plague is her secret to keeping people away.
