Shaun of the Dead creators Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have confirmed they're working on a new horror-comedy, called Slaughterhouse Rulez.

Frost and Pegg will executive produce the film, which will be their first collaboration since capping off the 'Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy' in 2013 with The World's End.

It's been a long time coming. Pegg spoke to Inverse Entertainment earlier this year and said: "Simon and I are working on something. We're trying to do something a bit special at the moment. It's a work in progress, and we may have some more information on it later in the year.

"I think I'd [want] to do something in the sci-fi world. Something a bit ghost hunter-y, or a bit Monster of the Week in a comedy. With two guys and a girl, it's like the X-Files, but they're not affiliated with any government agency."
