The first trailer for Fantastic Fear of Everything, starring Simon Pegg (Hot Fuzz), has landed online.

Here’s a synopsis:

Jack is a children’s author turned crime novelist whose detailed research into the lives of Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck, persecuted by the irrational fear of being murdered. When Jack is thrown a life-line by his long-suffering agent and a mysterious Hollywood executive takes a sudden and inexplicable interest in his script, what should be his big break rapidly turns into his big breakdown, as Jack is forced to confront his worst demons; among them his love life, his laundry and the origin of all fear.

Watch the trailer below, which Pegg released via Twitter:


The film is directed by Chris Hopewell – who has directed music videoes for “Radiohead” and “The Killers” – and Chrispian Mills, frontman for British rock band Kula Shaker. Are you at all interested?
