Simon Pegg Gets Spooked In First Poster For ‘Fantastic Fear of Everything’

Written by on May 2, 2012 

From the break-out hit Shaun of the Dead to his most recent turn in Ghotocol, Simon Pegg has starred in a solid string of blockbusters. But it’s time to get experimental, and he’s picked a project that could potentially stretch his resume past the mainstream.

The poster for his upcoming film A Fantastic Fear of Everything debuted, and it somehow manages to combine macabre and whimsy in a way that definitely elevates my interest. If the trailer we posted is any indication, it has a lot of potential. Helmed by Chris Hopewell and Crispian Mills, all the elements point at creative visuals aplenty and a gleefully dark storyline, all pulled together by Pegg’s neurotic character. It’s scheduled to release in the UK and Ireland on June 8th, but no word yet on a domestic release. Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long.

See poster and synopsis below [Empire]:


Jack 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.

Does seeing Simon Pegg in his underpants make you want to see this film more?
