Skip to the end [neat!]
I met Simon Pegg and Nick Frost when they were out in Australia a couple of years ago promoting Hot Fuzz (they were awesome), and asked – as everyone does – whether there’d ever be anymore Spaced. Simon said no, because he wasn’t sure there’s anything left to do with the characters, and it made me sad.
But now I’m happy! Prompted by the failed US adaptation of Spaced, Simon wrote the script for a Cloverfield-spoofing short film that reunites the residents of 23 Meteor St for Daisy’s 30th birthday. Aww!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: if you’ve never seen Spaced, buy the DVD now. By any means possible. It’s awesome.
