Simon Pegg has unveiled the first trailer for A Fantastic Fear Of Everything via his Twitter account .
The film is written and co-directed by Crispian Mills (yes, he of Kula Shaker fame), and sees Pegg sporting a freaky mop of hair (complemented by a shaggy beard) to play a children's author on the verge of losing 'it'.
Playing with horror tropes, fantasy sequences, broad comedy moments and rustic hand-hewn animation, it looks like quite the confection.
Pegg's Jack is making the jump from kiddie-lit to work on a serial killer tome, and it seems as if it's all a bit too much for his fragile mind.

A Fantastic Fear Of Everything opens on 8 June 2012. Keep your eyes peeled for an in-depth chat about the film with Pegg in the next issue of Total Film magazine.
