"Shaun" Gang Warms Up for "Hot Fuzz"

by | March 1, 2006 | Comments

ComingSoon.net pointed us towards a press release at the Working Title Films website, and the good word is this: "Shaun of the Dead" veterans Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost will soon be reuniting soon (with one heck of a supporting cast) to produce a cop comedy entitled "Hot Fuzz."

"Working Title is delighted to announce its next production, "Hot Fuzz," an action comedy from Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg, co-creators of the hugely successful romzomcom, "Shaun of the Dead."

A Working Title production in association with Big Talk Productions, "Hot Fuzz" is directed by Edgar Wright and stars Simon Pegg.

A comedy about a London cop who is seconded to deepest, darkest Somerset, the film is from an original screenplay by Wright and Pegg. "Hot Fuzz" will be produced by Nira Park ("Shaun of the Dead"), Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner and the executive producer is Natascha Wharton.

Pegg leads a stellar British cast including Nick Frost ("Shaun of the Dead"), Jim Broadbent ("Moulin Rouge"), Timothy Dalton ("The Living Daylights"), Steve Coogan ("Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story") and Martin Freeman ("The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy").

Says producer Nira Park, "We’re delighted to once again be joining creative forces with Working Title on this very exciting and very British film. Together, we’re looking forward to giving the police action genre the same treatment we gave the living dead in 2004."

Police constable, Nicholas Angel 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 neighbourhood 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.

The film will start principal photography later on in March."
