Shaun of the Dead’s Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reunite for gruesome horror comedy

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are reuniting to form a new film and TV production studio, with a new horror comedy movie the first item on the agenda.

The Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz stars will executive produce Slaughterhouse Rulez as part of their new banner Stolen Picture, according to Deadline.

The movie itself will be set in an elite boarding school, where boys and girls are destined for greatness and there are clear sets of rules.

However, things are literally shaken up when a nearby fracking site causes tremors and all sorts of horrors are unleashed as a battle for survival ensues.

The movie will be directed by Crispian Mills, and is based on a script he co-wrote with Henry Fitzherbert.

Stolen Picture itself is looking for film and TV projects with Pegg and Frost’s signature style to gear towards a global audience.

The pair have famously worked together on a number of modern comedy classics, starting out on the TV series Spaced, which has since gained cult status.

They then moved into movies with the Edgar Wright-directed ‘Cornetto Trilogy’ – Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End – as well as Hollywood film Paul, which co-starred Seth Rogen.
