Anyone that knows anything about me knows that one of my all-time favorite pieces of cinema is Shaun Of The Dead. Seriously, everytime I watch it I crack up at the same things. Hell, I even nicknamed my local watering hole that I go to every week “The Winchester” in homage to the flick. Well, if you are like me then you will be glad to hear that the team that brought you Shaun Of The Dead is back again with a new film, Hot Fuzz, slated to come out in 2007.
Here’s the synopsis, straight from the studio:
“Top London cop, Police Constable Nicholas Angel, finds himself reassigned to the sleepy West Country village of Sandford. With garden fetes and neighbourhood watch meetings replacing the action of the city, Angel struggles to adapt to his situation and finds himself partnered with Danny Butterman, an oafish but well meaning young Constable. Just as all seems lost, a series of grisly accidents motivates Angel into action. Convinced of foul play, Angel realizes that Sandford may not be as idyllic as it seems. With his faithful new partner in tow, Angel fights to prove his instincts are correct and uncover the truth about Sandford. Is Angel simply losing his mind in the safest, sweetest village in Britain? Or is something far more sinister at work? Whatever the truth, Sandford is about to get a lot less sleepy. Hot Fuzz is written by Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg, reuniting the creative force behind Shaun Of The Dead. Once again, Wright directs as Pegg leads a stellar cast, which includes Jim Broadbent, Nick Frost and Timothy Dalton.”
