Simon Pegg Has A “Fantastic Fear”

Simon Pegg-led psycho comedy “A Fantastic Fear of Everything” has become the first film to score backing from the new Pinewood Films financial initiative reports Variety.

Pegg plays a crime novelist, whose research into Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck, in fear of being murdered. Amara Karan, Clare Higgins, Sheridan Smith and Alan Drake also star.

Kula Shaker frontman Crispian Mills penned the script and is making his directorial debut on the $4.9 million project which Indomina and Universal will release in various territories. Filming is currently underway in the United Kingdom.
