According to The Hollywood Reporter Simon Pegg (Shaun Of The Dead, Spaced, Star Trek) is in negotiations for a role in Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One, the sci-fi adventure movie set in the future but based on a virtual game influenced by the games, TV, music and films of the ’80s.

Simon Pegg… Zombies… Not Shaun Of The Dead 2 But Absolutely Anything Clip
Simon Pegg is having some trouble with zombies but this isn’t a sequel to Shaun Of The Dead. It’s a clip from Absolutely Anything, directed by Terry Jones, with voice cameos from Jones a whole load of other Monty Python faithfuls – Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, John Cleese and Eric Idle. They play some pesky aliens while the sadly-missed Robin Williams is the voice of Pegg’s character’s dog. Absolutely Anything is  Britcom with Pegg...

Star Trek Into Darkness Review

Star Trek Into Darkness Review
There is a general pattern many hold with the Star Trek movies: The even-numbered movies are superior to the odd-numbered ones. While fans acknowledged this rule of sorts, later instalments such as Star Trek: Nemesis (the tenth movie) didn’t entirely support the notion. Then came 2009’s reboot to the Star Trek motion picture franchise, which could be seen as either the eleventh or the first in the line of new Star Trek movies. And it was brilliant. A...

New Set Photos for The World’s End
Fans of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz have been patiently waiting for the third in the Cornetto trilogy and this time it’s a yummy mint flavour. But if red meant zombies and blue meant police, what could green mean? Aliens have been one possibility for the “social science fiction“. The World’s End will once again see Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright all working together again. The film will revolve around a pub-crawl with Simon...
