Apart from Ant and Dec, the two other best mates who've made it big have to be Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. They've worked on loads of stuff together, and their friendship shines through. They're great.

We can look back fondly on the 'Cornetto Trilogy': Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End. These were some of the best British movies ever.


The solo projects they've embarked on, though... Remember Run Fatboy Run? Yikes.

Well now the pair are back together for what was previously a new secret project. However, Deadline are reporting that Pegg and Frost have formed a production company called Stolen Picture and their next project is a return to comedy-horror in a movie called Slaughterhouse Rulez.

Nick spoke to Inverse Entertainment earlier this year and said: "Simon and I are working on something. We're trying to do something a bit special at the moment. It's a work in progress, and we may have some more information on it later in the year.

"I think I'd [want] to do something in the sci-fi world. Something a bit ghost hunter-y, or a bit Monster of the Week in a comedy. With two guys and a girl, it's like the X-Files, but they're not affiliated with any government agency."


Edgar Wright, the director behind the 'Cornetto Trilogy', hasn't worked with the duo in four years. This interview has sparked rumours that now could be the time they reunite.

Nick added: "We're not Judd Apatow, we're not J.J. Abrams, so there are still people who say, 'I'd like to see this'. You're still made to jump through hoops. Everyone has a job to do and everyone has an opinion on everything."

He continued: "Writing Paul, Simon and I would always have a knee-jerk reaction to someone giving a note about something and think, 'What do you fucking know?'. I think as you get older and you mature more, you realise, you know what? Listen to that note. It could be fucking great, it could be worthwhile."

This is pretty exciting stuff. I'm praying it's as quotable as Hot Fuzz and as refreshing as a concept as Shaun of the Dead. Come on, LADs. Don't let us down.
