In my humble opinion, Simon Pegg can do little wrong. After all, he’s the guy who wrote some of the best genre-bending comedies in the last bunch of years– Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Paul, among them. His latest project finds Pegg in front of the camera only, playing a a children’s book author-turned-crime-novelist.
“His detailed research into the lives of Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck, persecuted by the irrational fear of being murdered,” the studio’s synopsis reads. “When Jack is thrown a life-line by his long-suffering agent and a mysterious Hollywood executive takes a sudden and inexplicable interest in his script, what should be his big break rapidly turns into his big breakdown, as Jack is forced to confront his worst demons; among them his love life, his laundry and the origin of all fear.”
