Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, both of whom starred in the hit British comedies (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Paul) have formed a new film and TV production banner called Stolen Picture. The duo will kick off their company with SLAUGHTERHOUSE RULEZ, which marks their return to the comedy-horror genre.

The film, which the duo executive produces, is directed by Crispian Mills from a script he co-wrote with Henry Fitzherbert. Sony Pictures and Catalyst Global Media’s Charlotte Walls produce. Sony’s Josephine Rose executive produces also.

Slaughterhouse Rulez is set in an elite boarding school– Welcome to Slaughterhouse– where boys are girls and groomed for power and greatness and they’re about to meet their match. The story’s hero, Don Wallace, is a wide-eyed new boy from a modest background forced to navigate a baffling new world of arcane rules and rituals, presided by sadistic sixth formers. Matters of status are aggressively enforced and conversation with school goddess Clemsie, are strictly forbidden.

But this ancient and ordered world is about to be shaken to its foundations– literally– and when a controversial frack site on prize school woodland causes seismic tremors, a mysterious sinkhole and an unspeakable horror is unleashed. Soon a new pecking order will be established as pupils, teachers and the school matron become locked in a bloody battle for survival.

Based in the UK, Stolen Picture will look for film and television projects geared towards a global audience. The company aims to produce a variety of scripted entertainment in line with Pegg and Frost’s unique brand.
