Everyone loves Simon Pegg. It's kind of hard not to, really. He's amazing in SHAUN OF THE DEAD and HOT FUZZ, and shines in little seen indie gems such as RUN FATBOY, RUN and BURKE & HARE. Since STAR TREK, however, he hasn't really been in the spotlight, though he has maintained an active presence on Twitter. Well, turns out he's been up to something, and that something is A FANTASTIC FEAR OF ANYTHING, the trailer for which he revealed on Twitter today.

A FANTASTIC FEAR OF EVERYTHING, co-directed by Chris Hopewell and Crispian Mills (who also wrote the script), looks to be incredibly surreal and downright delightful. 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.

Simply put, it looks great, and I personally welcome any film that features Simon Pegg as a lead. Mixing dark humor and surrealism, A FANTASTIC FEAR OF EVERYTHING will his theaters in the U.K. on June 8th. Check out the trailer below.
