Hi Si­mon! How are you?

Hi! I’m try­ing to fig­ure out what I’m do­ing now.

We’re on the Slaugh­ter­house Rulez set — what’s to­day’s plan?

I’ve just got a lit­tle scene with Michael [Sheen]. Michael and I al­ways wanted to be in a scene to­gether so we can prove that we’re not the same per­son.

So this will put an end to the con­spir­acy the­ory, then.

Ab­so­lutely! It’ll fi­nally put that to rest. Although there’ll be split screen the­o­ries and all sorts.

They can do won­ders now with CGI.

I know! Look at Ar­mie Ham­mer.

Con­grat­u­la­tions on the pro­duc­tion com­pany [Stolen Pic­ture, set up with Nick Frost] by the way. Have you got lots lined up?

Yeah, we’ve got a slate, and the ma­jor­ity of it will prob­a­bly be tele­vi­sion be­cause that seems to be where the most fer­tile ground is at the mo­ment. We’ll make films in­ter­mit­tently for the love of it, but cer­tainly not for the money, be­cause there’s not much money in low-bud­get film­mak­ing. It’s ex­cit­ing. Nick and I are feel­ing a bit like busi­ness peo­ple. We’ve got meet­ings with lawyers and things. It’s kind of weird.

SLAUGH­TER­HOUSE RULEZ WILL BE RE­LEASED TBC 2019
