Although not strictly horror, the new Simon Pegg comedy 'A Fantastic Fear of Everything' does have many-a horror element weaved into it's humorous plot. Crispian Mills penned the script and co-directs alongside Chris Hopewell. Mills (the son of actress Hayley Mills) may be better known to many as the lead-singer in ex-Brit rock band Kula Shaker. The first peek at Pegg in all his paranoid glory can be seen below. The 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Hot Fuzz' star is joined by fellow cast members Clare Higgins, Amara Karan, the sexy Sheridan Smith -below (Gavin and Stacey) and Kerry Shale in the new British comedy which will see a release at some point next year. Check out the still and the plot info below.
"Jack (Simon Pegg) is a children’s author turned crime novelist whose detailed research into the lives of Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck, persecuted by the irrational fear of being murdered. When Jack is thrown a life-line by his long-suffering agent and a mysterious Hollywood executive takes a sudden and inexplicable interest in his script, what should be his 'big break' rapidly turns into his 'big breakdown', as Jack is forced to confront his worst demons; among them his love life, his laundry and the origin of all fear."
