PEGG TALKS SHAUN OF THE DEAD
The eponymous Ain't It Cool News website features an interview with Spaced's Simon Pegg about his latest project Shaun of the Dead.
In case you've been in a coma for the past 6 months, Shaun is a Romantic-Zombie-Comedy, co-written by Pegg and Spaced director Edgar Wright (who also directs Shaun), and featuring a bevy of stars including Lucy Davis, Dylan Moran, Bill Nighy, Penelope Wilton and Spaced's Jessica Stevenson.
'Edgar and myself are both fans of the zombie genre and when it came to shooting the scene, we found ourselves in undead heaven, swiftly concluding that it would be enormous fun indeed to produce something that entirely concerned zombies,' writes Pegg.
'It was extraordinary. Very taxing and emotionally draining but looking back, it was the best experience of my working life. I was living the dream. The first day I walked through a crowd of Zombies, all of whom were moaning and staggering and generally being dead, it was a quite wonderful.
'We premiered a teaser trailer at the Fright Fest in London last weekend and the audience went nuts afterwards. It made us feel good. I've seen a rough cut of the whole thing and I'm very excited. It
looks bloody marvellous. We've made a Zombie movie for chrissakes!'
