FIRST SHAUN OF THE DEAD PHOTOS

An Empire Online reader who for the sake of anonymity we'll call Bob has emailed them with a despatch from the filming of Shaun of the Dead. This is the zombie movie created by the team behind Spaced, starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Bill Nighy, Jessica Stephenson and The Office's Lucy Davis.

An insider was an extra for the shooting of the final act of the film, which is loosely based on Night of the Living Dead. According to Bob the action takes place in a pub called The Winchester ?apparently the name of the pub has a particular meaning which Bob won't say for fear of revealing a major plot point.

'Our heroes (Simon Pegg, Dylan Moran, et al.) barricade themselves into the pub while the Zombies claw at the windows outside. Eventually, one of the leads (I won't say who) gets collared by the zombies and torn apart while crowd-surfing on the sea of the undead. The effects for this looked awesome.'

'The pub set on which I took these pics was immaculately put together on soundstage 2 at Ealing studios,' Bob tells us, 'and it was precise enough to include full racks of Smiths Scampi Fries about 2 years past their sell-by.'

Asked why exactly he's kicking a dummy of the landlord in the arse, apparently it was for 'token comedy value'.

NB: The Simon Pegg picture comes from Bob's mate Tom who saw the first picture and emailed this to us, telling us 'this film is going to be EXTREMELY gory - I saw photos of location shoots with torsos and limbs littering the streets.'
