Apparently, Simon Pegg (Thompson or possibly Thomson) ‘agonised over Tarantino rejection‘ when the filming dates for Tintin and Inglourious Basterds clashed.
The story is pretty thin and originated from the News of the World (not the world’s most reliable paper). I would link to the original sources but the NotW is part of Murdoch empire and now behind a pay-wall.
Burke & Hare
In better and more reliable news, Simon Pegg Andy Serkis (Capt. Haddock) are starring together in the new comedy, Burke & Hare.
Edit: And Paul
Thanks to Tom for reminding me. Pegg and Nick Frost are teaming up for Paul, a comedy adventure where a couple of SF fans find an alien.
Sorry about the annoying 20 second advert before the 1 minute trailer but I can’t get rid of it.
