The psycho-comedy stars Simon Pegg as Jack, a children’s author turned crime novelist whose detailed research into Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck. When a mysterious Hollywood executive shows an interest in Jack’s script, what should be his ‘big break’ rapidly turns into his ‘big breakdown’ as Jack is forced to confront his worst demons; his love life, his laundry and the origin of all fear.
A Fantastic Fear of Everything was written and directed by musician-turned-filmmaker Crispian Mills, marking his feature debut. He is joined by producer Geraldine Patten and co-director and animator Chris Hopewell as part of a collaboration with Collision Films, whose award-winning work includes Radiohead’s There There and The Killers’ Smile Like You Mean It.
Crispian Mills said about shooting at Shepperton: “I cannot think of anywhere else in the world that I’d prefer to shoot a movie that has the history, the facilities, the sense of occasion, the magic.”
Crispian Mills comments about the range of facilities available across Pinewood Studios Group: “Everything is here; all the talent is here and there’s a sense of family that really adds to the quality of the work.”
A Fantastic Fear of Everything is being released by Universal Pictures in the UK, as well as Germany, Australia, New Zealand and Latin America. Indomina Releasing is handling the US release.
