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.”

Unkar Plutt vs Chewbacca Deleted Scene

From Entertainment Weekly:

A never-before-seen deleted sequence from Star Wars: The Force Awakens has revealed the fate of Unkar Plutt, the blobfish-like junk dealer who made Rey’s life miserable on the desert world of Jakku.

As fans of the movie already know, Rey escaped Plutt’s clutches when she, Finn, and BB-8 stole the Millennium Falcon while fleeing from the First Order. Plutt (played by Simon Pegg) was last seen shaking his fists at the vanishing starship and crying out, “That’s mine!”

The theft of a prized vehicle proved to be enough comeuppance for the character, but this newly released deleted scene, available on the upcoming 3-D Collector’s Edition Blu-ray release, shows that director and co-writer J.J. Abrams originally had an even more brutal ending in mind for the side villain. (Those who read the movie’s novelization already have a hint of what’s to come.)

From Collider.com:

“With Star Trek Beyond opening in theaters this weekend, the other day I landed an exclusive video interview with Simon Pegg and Karl Urban. Since they’ve been answering a lot of the same questions about Star Trek, plus the fact that I didn’t want to talk about spoilers from the movie, I decided to ask some fun questions. We talked about what they collect, favorite video game consoles, Pegg’s Harrison Ford picture, what they’d like to see in a Star Wars anthology movie, Pete’s Dragon, Thor: Ragnarok and a lot more. And while I think the entire interview is a lot of fun, I strongly suggest watching the last minute or two where they try and out franchise each other. Trust me, it’ll make you laugh.”
