The legend that is Simon Pegg quite frankly has never put a foot wrong in his career in this reporter's eyes. As we all sit antsy at the promise of the approaching arrival of sci-fi comedy 'The World's End', his new and final project in the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, news has arrived that he is set to join 'Gremlins' director Joe Dante's new adaptation of ghost story 'Casting the Runes'. David Tully has penned a script based on the original story by M.R. James which has previously been adapted for screen and radio over the decades. Check out the plot details below.
"When up-and-coming actor Jake Harrington inexplicably hurls himself in front of an oncoming subway train, celebrity gossip blogger Mark Dunning smells a story in Harrington's connection to self-help guru Simon Karswell. What Dunning isn't prepared for is the secret behind Karswell's motivational-speaker success: a command of dark occult forces that reveals his following to be more cult than therapy."
