The comedy legends behind “The Cornetto Trilogy” Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are reuniting for a new comedy project.
During an interview with JoBlo Nick admitted that he and Simon are again working together on a top-secret comedy project.
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.
Right now no one really knows much about the project but we’ve got our fingers crossed it’s something for the big screen and will involve Edgar Wright, the director and co-writer of the Cornetto trilogy of films.
What we do know is that it will have something to do with Simon and Nick’s infamous love of sci-fi, not long ago they wrote the movie Paul together, and may take inspiration from monster of the week shows like Buffy or even the X-Files.
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.
Unfortunately with their busy schedules we are most likely in for a long wait before we see a new collection materialise, but assuming that it’s anything like their previous work we are all in for a wonderful treat.
