Simon Pegg And Nick Frost Are Making A New Horror-Comedy Called 'Slaughterhouse Rulez'
Would you look at that. Finally, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are getting back to doing what they do best – making a funny as balls comedy-horror movie that manages to find humour in the impending apocalypse.
The duo are famous for their ‘Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy’, which features the cult classic, Shaun Of The Dead, the brilliant Hot Fuzz, and the pretty underwhelming, and worst film of the three, The World’s End. They also starred in extra-terrestrial comedy Paul, voiced by Seth Rogen, which was pretty funny too.
Now, they have another flick on the horizon, called Slaughterhouse Rulez, which will be the first film made under the pair’s brand new TV production banner called ‘Stolen Picture’, which Frost announced recently:

The news of the new movie was announced by deadline.com, who sum it up as follows:
“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.”
The film is directed by Crispian Mills (A Fantastic Fear Of Everything) and is based on a script he co-wrote with Henry Fitzherbert.
Frost and Pegg will executive produce the movie but it’s unknown whether they will star or make cameos in the film. There is no other information on casting but it’s expected that filming will start later this year.
If it’s as half as funny as Shaun Of The Dead, it won’t be one to be missed.
