Simon Pegg - Fly away Bastard. Come back Paul

Bad news. Simon Pegg is no longer going to be in Quentin Tarantino's Inglorious Bastards as mentioned a few days ago.

"I won't be appearing in QT's forthcoming Inglorious Bastards due to insurmountable scheduling difficulties. We really tried to make it work but in the end, it just was not possible without severe ramifications elsewhere."

The conflict is due to him filming the movie, Paul. Greg Mottola (Superbad) has signed on to direct and it was written by Pegg and Nick Frost.

Paul is a road movie set in America about two British comic book geeks that get into an adventure across America. Nick Frost will be the lead while Pegg will be the sidekick.

Sad that Pegg won't be in Inglorious Bastards and I get he will be gutted not to be working with Tarantino, but Paul does sound pretty good and the Frost / Pegg dynamic always works well. We will just have to see if it works without Edgar Wright directing them.

Discuss in the forum.
