Sheridan Smith in A Fantastic Fear with Simon Pegg

West End leading lady Sheridan Smith has a non-stop shcedule at the moment.  She has been filming The Tower Block and on Monday joins Simon Pegg at Shepperton Studios to start shooting her part in A Fantastic Fear of Everything.

Filming started at the beginning of July with Jack (Simon Pegg) playing  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 he 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.

Alan Drake, Amara Karan, Clare Higgins and Sheridan Smith are all co-starring.  Crispian Mills will direct from his own script alongside Chris Hopewell.  A Fantastic Fear of Everything is currently shooting at Shepperton and is part of Pinewood Studios’ new initiative to support low-budget British films.
