British comedians Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have started a new production company called Stolen Picture and announced their first project entitled Slaughterhouse Rulez. Pegg and Frost first worked together on the British sitcom Spaced and have gone on to collaborate with Edgar Wright on Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World's End. In addition, the duo wrote, directed, and starred in the hilarious extraterrestrial comedy Paul. Frost and Pegg developed Stolen Picture to produce different types of scripted television shows or movies that fit into their unique brand of absurdity.
Deadline reports that Slaughterhouse Rulez will be a horror-comedy that takes place at an elite boarding school called Slaughterhouse. The hero of the story is Don Wallace, a lad from a modest background who must navigate his way through a Slaughterhouse with sadistic rituals, tough rules, competition, and status while being closely monitored.

Edgar Wright only has four major features under his belt, but he's already regarded as a legendary filmmaker.
Three of these films make up the "Three Flavours Cornetto" trilogy, a series of films which are all directed by Wright, written by Wright and actor Simon Pegg, and starring Pegg and Nick Frost. Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World's End make up this thematic trilogy--which have a running joke of all being in reference to a different flavour of Cornetto ice cream. Despite this quirky running theme, the three films are vastly different. Shaun of the Dead is a zombie film, Hot Fuzz is a buddy cop movie, and The World's End is an apocalyptic pub crawl. All three are hilarious and highly regarded comedy films.
Wright has expanded from this team once already, »

Just a few weeks after Sony Pictures handed out a new Baby Driver release date, the studio has debuted a thrilling new international trailer that should appease both comedy and action junkies alike. This action-comedy marks the long-awaited return of beloved writer-director Edgar Wright, with Baby Driver representing his first film in four years, since 2013's The World's End. If the critical reception this movie has already gotten is any indication, the director is most certainly back and better than ever.
A talented, young getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. When he meets the girl of his dreams (Lily James), Baby sees a chance to ditch his criminal life and make a clean getaway. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey), he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, »
Finally, the very first trailer for director Edgar Wright's Baby Driver is here! It has been four years since we have seen anything new from the beloved filmmaker, whose last movie The World's End beautifully rounded out his Cornetto trilogy. Now he is totally switching gears and stepping away from the world of comedy with Baby Driver; an action-driven crime thriller that looks to be something very different than anything we have seen from him previously.
The Baby Driver Twitter account started teasing the arrival of this very first trailer last week with some simple photos and gifs from the movie, but they were stingy on the footage, whihc http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byb2eJ_lLesSony has now released online. The movie is having its world premiere at SXSW this weekend, so they decided it would be the perfect time to finally give the public a look »
The action flick stars Ansel Elgort as a titular getaway driver who becomes involved with a number of seedy characters and crooks played by Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm, Jon Bernthal, Eiza Gonzalez and Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea.
It's finally here, folks! It's been three years since Shaun Of The Dead, Hot, Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World director Edgar Wright capped off his Three Flavors Cornetto trilogy with the release of The World's End, and now the style-for-days director is back with a bounce in his step and a song pumping through his veins with the upcoming release...

Simon Pegg/Nick Frost: "Simon and I are working on something," says Nick Frost, referring to his friend and creative partner Simon Pegg. "We're trying to do something a bit special at the moment." The two met in the 1990s and quickly became friends; they began working together on the British TV show Spaced, which was directed by Edgar Wright. Subsequently, the trio made Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End. Pegg and Frost also wrote and starred in the alien comedy Paul (above) and Frost says he'd like to do something else "in the sci-fi world."

Well, fans are getting Constantine season 2 after all. Kinda. The CW revealed today that Matt Ryan will return as John Constantine for an animated series on the CW Seed, which is currently home to the Vixen animated series, and an upcoming series based on Freedom Fighters member, The Ray.
There are some big names involved with this one. For one thing, Arrow-verse godfather Greg Berlanti will serve as executive producer, and David S. Goyer will apparently do some writing for the show as well. And, of course, bringing Matt Ryan back to voice the title character makes perfect sense, »
