Written by Pegg and Frost, the road movie is about two British comic book geeks that get into an adventure across America.

In related news, Pegg says that he won’t be able to star in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Bastards. as was previously reported. “Much to our mutual disappointment, I won’t be appearing in QT’s forthcoming ‘Inglorious Bastards’ due to insurmountable scheduling difficulties,” he said. “We really tried to make it work but in the end, it just was not possible without severe ramifications elsewhere. I’m trying to remain upbeat, as Tom Selleck said ‘Who the hell is Indiana Jones anyway?'”

Regarding “Bastards,” Ain’t It Cool News adds that former “Freaks and Geeks” star Samm Levine will play one of Brad Pitt’s underlings, while David Krumholtz won’t be joining the film.
