Were you a fan of Shaun of the Dead? I haven’t seen it so if you were, congrats; I have no idea what I am missing and I don’t really care. That said, the boys behind the flick are back at it with Hot Fuzz, which was written by Simon Pegg (pictured above) and will star Pegg as a top Lon-don cop exiled to a sleepy rural village reports Variety.
Joining Pegg in the cast is a whole slew of names including Nick Frost as Pegg’s bumbling new partner, Steve Coogan, Jim Broadbent, Timothy Dalton, Edward Woodward, Rafe Spall, Paddy Considine, Billie Whitelaw, Anne Reid and Martin Freeman.
Filming is set to begin on March 15.
You want a full synopsis? Well, check it out below:
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 neighborhood 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.
