Simon Pegg Won’t Be An ‘Inglorious Bastard’

17 08 2008

So, it seems Simon Pegg was only ‘in talks’ to be in Tarantino’s war epic and now, due to a scheduling conflict, he will not be cast in the film. Son of a bitch!

On a lighter note, Simon will, instead, be working on a film by Superbad director, Greg Mottola, titled Paul.

From Slashfilm:

‘Written and starring Pegg and Nick Frost, the story is a road movie about two British comic book geeks that get into an adventure across America. I’ve also heard that Pegg and Frost will reverse their dynamic, and Pegg will actually be playing the sidekick in this one. Edgar Wright is not involved.’

I guess it’s not so bad that he dropped Bastards to pursue another comedy with his pal, Nick Frost. In fact, I feel like that’s a much better move for him. If Bastards is going down, I’d hate to see Simon Pegg go with it. Now if only we could persuade Brad Pitt to drop out too…
