A FANTASTIC FEAR OF EVERYTHING is the first film to receive backing from Pinewood Shepperton Studios' indie finance initiative Pinewood Films, according to Variety. The film stars Simon Pegg (above, SHAUN OF THE DEAD), along with Amara Karan, Clare Higgins (HELLRAISER), Sheridan Smith (below) and Alan Drake.
The story sees Pegg play a children's author turned crime novelist, whose research into the lives of Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck and perpetually in fear of being murdered.
Crispian Mills makes his feature debut as director and writer of the picture. The "psycho-comedy" began production on July 6 in Shepperton, England. It's budgeted at under $5 million. Universal Pictures and Indomina Releasing (who will release it in the U.S.) are also backing the project.
