Sad news about Psychoville, what if Lars Von Trier directed Star Wars and Simon Pegg buddies up with Edgar Wright in LA, all in this week’s tweets
Sometimes you have to wonder why the paparazzi and gossip mags exist. After all, if you really want to become a pseudo-stalker from your own living room you’re not going to get it from pictures of celebs walking their dog in a pair of dirty slacks. Five minutes on Twitter can be enough to learn all you need to know about what some of the more web-savvy sci-fi icons are up to.
Take Simon Pegg, who in the past week or so has told his 1.5million plus followers that he’s moved from his long-standing home in Crouch End, is currently in LA (but isn’t moving there), attended the 30th Anniversary Raiders Of The Lost Ark screening; did some Bikram Yoga, saw Warrior , and started writing a mystery project with Edgar Wright (wonder what it could be? *strokes chin*), is promoting Burke And Hare (finally seeing a release Stateside this week) and had a “bitching grapefruit” for breakfast. Twitter: transforming humanity into a species of cyber-stalkers one follower at a time.
Alright, we might not be getting the warts ’n’ all insight which the weeklies make their fortunes on, but the sanitised version gives us a healthier and much less creepy insight. Plus, you don’t get banter like this from the rags:
@ edgarwright He hasn’t checked. He’s a very good boy.
Oh, and if you are still wondering what they’re writing in LA, here’s another clue:

@ pattonoswalt If Lars Von Trier had directed STAR WARS, it would've ended in an hour-long scene in the trash compactor where they don't escape.
I wrote the first draft of this episode, b/c Russell had no time. Then he took it back and made it so much bigger! # Torchwood

@ RealReeceShears Other news - there really will be no more "Psychoville". But Steve P and I have "something else" for you. Only in our minds at the moment...
Re "Psychoville" and "axed"; not quite what happened tbh. WE decided to leave it at two, and NOT be an axed show if they DIDN'T want it.
