Simon Pegg And Nick Frost To Take On America In ‘Paul’

We’re huge Simon Pegg fans around these parts and by these parts I mean my nerdy “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz” worshipping brain. I chatted with Mr. Pegg for a while this afternoon and got some interesting updates on his litany of upcoming projects (check back in tomorrow for some more details!), including the film he and Nick Frost have been writing together.

Don’t confuse this one with Simon and Nick’s next Edgar Wright collaboration. This one is all theirs. 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!”

Pegg added that no director has been set for this one yet.

Do you have as much geek love for Pegg and Frost as I do? What do you think they have in mind for “Paul”?
