Cannes 2008: Simon Pegg on His New Project
Hot Fuzz star to play comic nerd.
The Affable Brit said: "I just finished a script with my writing partner Nick Frost and that is called Paul and we're going to shoot it later this year or early next year, it's a road movie set in America about two British comic book geeks that get into an adventure across America. Write what you know as they say."
He said he had a director in mind, but wouldn't let slip who it was, merely saying: "its someone really cool."
He also had this to say about his third collaboration with Fuzz and Shaun director Edgar Wright:
"Edgar is off doing Scott Pilgrim and then we'll get back together and do our third one together, provisionally title World's End but that was a premature announcement from Universal and it's probably that the title will change."
