Low-budget Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead) starrer A Fantastic Fear of Everything is the first pic to receive backing from Pinewood Shepperton Studios’ indie finance initiative Pinewood Films, reports Variety.
“The story sees Pegg play a children’s author turned crime novelist, whose research into the lives of Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck and perpetually in fear of being murdered.”
Pic is penned and helmed by Crispian Mills, former frontman of indie rock band Kula Shaker, and marks his feature debut.
The under £3 million ($4.9 million) psycho-comedy, which already began lensing at Shepperton on July 6, is also being backed by Universal Pictures and Indomina Releasing (who will release here in the States).
