June 10th, 2019 by Marc Comments


Great news for fans of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as the duo are bringing another of their brand of horror to the big screen.

Orion Pictures has acquired their movie pitch called Svalta from their (along with Miles Ketley) banner, Stolen Picture.

“The story follows a family on their summer vacation to a remote Swedish island where they discover a serial killer is on the loose, but the locals have no interest in helping the stranded family of tourists. The title is taken from the name of the fictional island.”

The movie will be written by Frost while the others produce.

Orion Pictures President John Hegeman said: “We are unbelievably excited to be partnering with Simon, Nick and Miles on Svalta.

“The story is scary, awesome and crazy, and their unique voice is perfect for this movie. We can’t wait to bring this to the big screen with them.”

Stolen Picture also has other projects in the works, including  Ben Aaronovitch’s adaptation of Rivers of London and Truth Seekers, a comedy horror series about paranormal conspiracy.

I love the Pegg and Frost stuff, so i’m all in for this.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
