Shaun of the Dead's Simon Pegg & Nick Frost Reunite for Coronavirus PSA (Video)

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are here with a Shaun of the Dead-inspired coronavirus PSA.

The actors reimagined a scene from their 2004 horror comedy and gave some helpful coronavirus tips in the parody video, which they posted on YouTube on Thursday (March 19).

It features Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as their respective characters in the film – Shaun and Ed – talking on the phone, but instead of planning where they should go during the zombie apocalypse, they instead decide to “follow the [National Health Service’s] guidelines to the letter” and stay inside.

“If you can, stay at home, have a cup of tea, and wait for all this to blow over,” Simon says.

Here's Why a Fourth 'Star Trek' Movie Might Not Happen with One of the Stars Throwing Some Shade

Simon Pegg, who plays Scotty in the Star Trek franchise, doesn’t expect a fourth film to happen.

“The fact is, Star Trek movies don’t make Marvel money,” Simon told Total Film.”They make maybe $500 million at the most, and to make one now, on the scale they’ve set themselves, is $200 million. You have to make three times that to make a profit.”

He then threw a little shade at the studio, saying, “I don’t feel like the last one… [Paramount Pictures] didn’t really take advantage of the 50th anniversary. The regimen at the time dropped the ball on the promo of the film. And we’ve lost momentum. I think losing Anton [Yelchin] was a huge blow to our little family, and our enthusiasm to do another one might have been affected by that. So I don’t know.”

2016′s Star Trek Beyond, which was co-written by Simon, did not do as well as 2016′s Star Trek Into the Darkness at the box office. Beyond earned $344 million vs. Darkness‘ $467 million.

There is still some success in the Star Trek universe.
