Frost Creating Chills
Nick's directing a horror short

Frost-creating-chills

While he was involved creatively in all three Cornetto Trilogy films, co-wrote Paul and developed the idea for this year’s Cuban Fury, Nick Frost is pushing further into work behind the camera. The Wrap reports that he’s directing his first project, a new horror short.

Clearly deciding not to waste the downtime he had between work stints on Vince Vaughn comedy Business Or Pleasure, Frost has come up with a way to kick off a directorial career by generating his own material.  

“I wrote a short film earlier this year, and I'm hoping we're going to shoot it in May or June,” he says. There are no details on what it might be about or who will be in it yet, but you’ve got to figure that Frost will be able to call on some solid names to show up in front of the camera.

It all springs from his experiences working with Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg, and the freedom they offered for everyone to contribute. "Our films, we have so much say in terms of how it should be done. Not with Edgar – Edgar's different because he's a savant and has worked out every possible angle before we even got to set, but the things I do without Edgar, people are always happy for you to pipe up and say, ‘Hey, maybe we should shoot this here.'”

Looks like a new player has entered the game: Wright’s going to have to start looking over his shoulder…
