From the makers of the smash hit comedy, Shaun of the Dead. Top London cop, PC Nicholas Angel, finds himself reassigned to the sleepy village of Sandford.
With garden fetes and neighbourhood watch meetings replacing the action of the city, Angel struggles to adapt to his situation and finds himself partnered with Danny Butterman; an oafish but well meaning young Constable.
Just as all seems lost, a series of grisly accidents motivates Angel into action. Convinced of foul play, Angel realises that Sandford may not be as idyllic as it seems.
Much of Hot Fuzz was filmed in Wells in 2006, with The Crown an integral part of the story and featuring in many of the background shots – we are The Crown at Sandford!
The interior of The Crown was, in fact, The Royal Standard of England, England’s oldest freehouse, in Forty Green, Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire.
Director: Edgar Wright. Cast: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Paddy Considine, Jim Broadbent, Timothy Dalton, Olivia Coleman, Edward Woodward.
In February, 2007, a special ‘premiere’ was held in Wells and we were thrilled to welcome stars of Hot Fuzz, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, with director Edgar Wright, back to The Crown for a meal in Anton’s Bistrot.
