Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Do America

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are a comic duo unmatched by any others in today's film climate. After Spaced, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, these two have proven to know the ins-and-outs of what being funny is all about. So whenever they announce a new project, it's always fiercely exciting.

Pegg revealed to MTV that the two will be back onscreen together for a new movie called Paul, which they are also writing themselves. It's about two British geeks who go on a road trip across America, and it will be shot in the States.

The interesting part is, apparently this time Nick Frost will play the lead and Simon his sidekick.

“I’m the bitch in this one. This time Simon’s the bitch!” Pegg laughed.

The duo is currently still finishing the first draft. No director has been attached yet. Though you can never rule out the possibility of Edgar Wright directing, Pegg claimed that this film will not be a part of their usual collaboration.
