Here’s some fun news for a slow post-holiday weekend: a theater company in the UK has received Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg’s blessings for their live stage production of ‘Shaun of the Dead.’ Based on Wright’s debut feature film, the stage show includes musical sequences, audience participation, and encourages fans to come dressed as zombies or their favorite characters. Similar in spirit to the long-running tradition of ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ late night shadow performances, the ‘Shaun’ stage show is a recreation of the modern classic. And to celebrate their upcoming tour of the show, the company has released this pretty neat little trailer.
Shaun of the Dead
A ways back we heard through the grapevine that 'Shaun of the Dead' stars and frequent Edgar Wright collaborators Simon Pegg and Nick Frost would reprise their 'Dead' roles for the Disney Channel's upcoming 'Phineas and Ferb' Halloween special, and the Eve approaches. We won't get a 'Shaun' sequel anytime soon (we hope), so see Shaun and Ed back in action serving up fried gold for 'Phineas and Ferb' right now!
The Disney Channel's long-running 'Phineas and Ferb' has managed some impressive guest stars and tribute episodes in recent years, but its latest get is a slice of fried gold. Ten years after its release, 'Shaun of the Dead' stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have announced that iconic zombie-killers Ed and Shaun will return in animated form for a forthcoming Halloween special of 'Phineas and Ferb.'
Sad news for LEGO fans and even sadder news for LEGO fans who are also fans of the cult horror/comedy 'Shaun of the Dead.' Last month we reported on a Shaun of the Dead LEGO set that was built to appease fans of the movie. If the petition got 10,000 supporters (it did) LEGO would consider putting it into production. LEGO has reviewed the petition and...it's not going to happen.
In case you were wondering what to get your sweet children for the holidays this year, LEGO maniacs have created their own LEGO set based on the movie 'Shaun of the Dead' that starred Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as two bumbling blokes who woke up to a zombie invasion.
