Simon Pegg and Nick Frost to ‘play Simon and Garfunkel’ – Tabloid Hell

'Hot Fuzz' duo try to cause a bit of confusion...

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have announced that they will be making a film about Simon And Garfunkel – but only to put people off the true story of their next project.

The comic duo spread rumours of a false plot at the premiere of Pegg’s new movie ‘How To Lose Friends and Alienate People’ in London‘s Leicester Square last night (September 25).

He told The Sun: “I’m working on a script with Nick Frost called ‘Paul’. You can tell everyone it’s about Paul Simon.”

Frost added to the yarn, saying, “Simon’s going to play [Art] Garfunkel and I’m going to play Paul Simon.”

However, the newspaper has revealed that the true plot of the project will see the stars of ‘Hot Fuzz’ and ‘Shaun of the Dead’ play comic book fans on an adventure in the USA.
