Simon Pegg & Nick Frost Launch Stolen Picture Banner With Comedy-Horror ‘Slaughterhouse Rulez’

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, who co-starred in hit British comedies Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Paul, have formed the film and TV production banner Stolen Picture. The duo will kick open its doors with Slaughterhouse Rulez, marking their return to the comedy-horror genre.

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.

Based in the UK, Stolen Picture will look for film and television projects geared towards a global audience. The company will aim to produce a variety of scripted entertainment in line with Pegg and Frost’s unique brand.

Simon Pegg To Star In Katharine O’Brien’s ‘Lost Transmissions’ For Pulse Films

Simon Pegg, the Brit actor best known for his roles in Shaun of the Dead, Mission: Impossible and Star Trek, is set to star in Katharine O’Brien’s Lost Transmissions.

O’Brien will direct from her own script and story that follows Hannah, a shy songwriter who discovers that her friend, respected record producer Theo Ross, has lapsed on his medication for schizophrenia. Hannah rallies a group of friends to help commit Theo to a psychiatric facility, chasing him as he outruns his colorful delusions through the glamour and grit of Los Angeles. From the highs of rock ‘n’ roll to rock bottom, it’s a story of the unsung heroes behind the hits.

“In dealing with mental health, Lost Transmissions combines both comedic and tragic elements,” O’Brien said. “Simon has such a uniquely attuned sense of how to play a range of comedy in moments that still feel real. I’m excited to embrace his very fine skills as a dramatic actor with this film.”
