Simon Pegg and Edgar Wrights new film 'Hot Fuzz' is all set to go, with principal photography starting later on in March and with a planed release date of February 2007.

The film, a comedy about a London cop who is seconded to deepest, darkest Somerset, Police constable, Nicholas Angel is good at his job, so good in fact, he makes everyone else look bad. As a result, his superiors at the Met have decided to sweep him under the carpet. So it is that London's top cop finds himself in the sleepy West Country village of Sandford. With garden fetes and neighbourhood watch meetings replacing the action of the city, Angel struggles to adapt to his situation and finds himself partnered with Danny Butterman (Frost), an oafish but well meaning young Constable, who dreams of being Mel Gibson. Just as all seems lost, a series of grisly accidents motivates Angel into action. Convinced of foul play, Angel realises that Sandford may not be as idyllic as it seems.

The film is from an original screenplay by Wright and Pegg. Hot Fuzz will be produced by Nira Park (Spaced and Shaun of the Dead), Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner and the executive producer is Natascha Wharton and will feature a stellar British cast including Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead), Jim Broadbent (Moulin Rouge), Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights), Steve Coogan (A Cock and Bull Story) and Martin Freeman (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy).
