Wright and Pegg Get 'Hot' Together

originally posted December 15, 2005

Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg’s Hot Fuzz-their eagerly-awaited successor to Shaun of the Dead-has reportedly been given the green light by Working Title Films, according to

"We got the green light yesterday," said Pegg. "It sounds as if it’s going to be March, which is exciting."

The British cop action-comedy, written by Pegg and Wright, will star Pegg and Nick Frost as two mismatched cops who team up in a West Country backwater.

"We've actually been writing it for most of the year!" Pegg added. "We've been working so hard on it. It's such a complex script... It's been a far more intensive process than writing Shaun... but I think that what we've come up with now is a better script than Shaun of the Dead, so fingers crossed."
