The Shaun of the Dead remake we need right now
As questions over what we must always and shouldn’t do through the unfolding COVID-19 pandemic develop in quantity, actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have helpfully stepped in with a PSA that riffs on their roles in Edgar Wright’s 2004 zombie comedy Shaun of the Useless.
One of the vital well-known scenes within the movie options their characters arising with a plan to take care of the zombies (and, notably, ignoring a newscaster’s recommendation to remain indoors). The video Pegg and Frost uploaded follows the identical beats as the 2 share a cellphone dialog, advising following NHS guidelines, calling out seemingly insensitive jokes in their very own film and the disastrous outcomes of their characters having not stayed inside, and poking enjoyable at folks hoarding bathroom paper.
Director Edgar Wright has also shared the video with the caption, “Don’t go to the Winchester,” in reference to the pub the characters in Shaun of the Useless find yourself in, as an alternative recommending going to “the virtual Winchester” by staying in and streaming the film.
