​Simon Pegg Shares Plot Details Of New Movie 'Slaughterhouse Rulez'

SImon Pegg and Nick Frost have brought us some undisputed bangers in the past, having both starred in Pegg and Edgar Wright's 'Cornetto Trilogy' - which included Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End - as well as cult Channel 4 series Spaced.

But the best might be yet to come, as they recently launched a new indie TV and film production company, Stolen Picture.

The first output from this banner is Pegg and Frost's new movie, Slaughterhouse Rulez - which Pegg has now teased plot details for.

"It's going to be really fun. It's a sort of a horror comedy," Pegg told Digital Trends.

"It felt like the right thing for Nick and I to have as our first collaboration with Stolen Picture.

"It's about a private school in the U.K. which sells off parts of its land to a fracking company, and the fracking company then unleashes a subterranean monster that terrorizes the school.

"It's a big metaphor for the U.K. privatizing things, and it's mixed up with some ridiculous, sloppy horror. So it's right up our street."

Earlier this year, Pegg revealed that the long-awaited project would be a horror-comedy - a genre that the Pegg, Frost and Wright have absolutely nailed.

He also explained it would be set in a well-to-do public school, and that it is 'very satirical' and 'very much about the U.K. selling itself off'.

The double act are also busy working on a half-hour horror-comedy series, which will be called Truth Seekers.

"Each episode is going to be an adventure, a potential haunting or something," Pegg told Variety.

"It'll start as a very parochial idea, a very small business venture for these people, but it will expand as the series goes on to be something far more global. It's a language everyone understands, the mystery of the unknown.

"Shaun of the Dead was a very parochial story set in North London and somehow it managed to get this global reach because everyone understands the language of zombie movies."

The show will follow three amateur paranormal investigators as they delve into some kind of paranormal incident, taking on a new monster each week.

The two also explained that, while still very busy with other projects, they'd eventually be 'breaking free' of past commitments and that 'eventually everything will be Stolen Picture'.

Busy, busy guys.
