The duo are best-known for the brilliant Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz so producing another horror-comedy can only be a good thing.
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have formed a film and TV production company called Stolen Picture.
The first film they’ll be exec producing under the new banner is called Slaughterhouse Rulez.
The film will be directed by Crispian Mills (who wrote and directed Simon Pegg-starrer A Fantastic Fear of Everything), based on a script he co-wrote with Henry Fitzherbert. While it’s being said that Pegg and Frost aren’t expected to star in the new Sony Pictures-backed film, we still reckon this is none to keep your eyes peeled for.
According to Deadline, the synopsis reads: “Slaughterhouse Rulez is set in an elite boarding school – Welcome to Slaughterhouse – where boys and girls are groomed for power and greatness and they’re about to meet their match. The story’s hero, Don Wallace, is a wide-eyed new boy from a modest background forced to navigate a baffling new world of arcane rules and rituals, presided by sadistic sixth formers. Matters of status are aggressively enforced and conversation with school goddess Clemsie, are strictly forbidden.
“But this ancient and ordered world is about to be shaken to its foundations – literally – when a controversial frack site on prize school woodland causes seismic tremors, a mysterious sinkhole and an unspeakable horror is unleashed. Soon a new pecking order will be established as pupils, teachers and the school matron become locked in a bloody battle for survival.”
