Well, here's a movie we sort of forgot about entirely. First announced last summer, Simon Pegg signed on to star in "A Fantastic Fear of Everything," an ambitious, oddball tale being co-directed by an interesting pair: Chris Hopewell (who has helmed music videos for people like Radiohead, The Knife and The Killers) and by Crispian Mills (the front-man of Britpop also-rans Kula Shaker). Well, their result of the collaboration is now available for all to see, and certainly, it delivers in the visual department.

Well, here's a movie we sort of forgot about entirely. First announced last summer, Simon Pegg signed on to star in "A Fantastic Fear of Everything," an ambitious, oddball tale being co-directed by an interesting pair: Chris Hopewell (who has helmed music videos for people like Radiohead, The Knife and The Killers) and by Crispian Mills (the front-man of Britpop also-rans Kula Shaker). Well, their result of the collaboration is now available for all to see, and certainly, it delivers in the visual department.

Penned by Mills, the film follows Jack, a children's author-turned-crime-novelist whose deep research into gruesome Victorian era murders has made him an insomniac, fearful mess who can barely leave his house or go to the store. Pushed by the ghost of his ex-wife and his psychotherapist, Jack eventually makes the journey to the laundromat and through a series of events he meets a girl and finds himself on the run from an actual serial killer. And that's just the tip of the iceberg of what happens to Pegg's character in a film that is certainly going full tilt in the trailer revealed by the actor today on Twitter.

Highly stylized and both absurd and affectionate, the balancing act of the tone will be the key to its success here, and we imagine it's one that's hard to encapsulate in a trailer. We'll find out soon enough as "A Fantatsic Fear of Everything" opens June 8th in the U.K. No U.S. date has been set yet, but Indomina Releasing has the rights to the picture.
