The first trailer for Fantastic Fear of Everything was released on Simon Pegg’s Twitter feed and it looks quite promissing and very entertaining. Pegg stars in the new quirky dark British comedy as a petrified writer named Jack, a children’s author obsessed with death and haunted by a hedgehog.
The film is written and directed by musician-turned-filmmaker Crispian Mills. He is joined by co-director and animator Chris Hopewell, whose award-winning work includes Radiohead’s “There There” and The Killers’ “Smile Like You Mean It.”
The film opens on June 8 in the U.K., but a U.S. release date has not yet been released.
Plot Summary: Simon Pegg will star in “A Fantastic Fear of Everything,” a psycho comedy in which he plays a children’s author turned crime novelist whose research into the lives of Victorian serial killers turns him into a paranoid wreck, especially when a Hollywood executive decides he wants to make a film out of his findings.
