Hot Fuzz - Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright

Hot Fuzz, written by Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright, opens today. You can go behind the scenes thank to their video diaries.

Meanwhile, in The Times, Kevin Maher talks to Pegg and co-star Nick Frost. And there's a profile of Simon Pegg by Neil Norman in The Independent
Pegg's secret is that he likes the genres he is parodying, which allows him a little more dramatic licence than someone who holds them in contempt. Thus, Shaun of the Dead was not just a great comedy about suburban slackers; it was also a rather good zombie horror movie or, as the tagline put it, the first romantic zombie comedy or "rom-zom-com". Whether he can pull off the same trick with Hot Fuzz remains to be seen, but so far the entrails are reading well.
