Hot on the heels of the recent smash hit comedy Hot Fuzz, Simon Pegg stars in actor-turned-director David Schwimmer’s feature film debut, Run, Fat Boy, Run. The film boasts a strong international cast including BAFTA winning actress Thandie Newton (Crash, Mission Impossible II), Hank Azaria (Huff, The Simpsons) and Dylan Moran (Shaun of the Dead, A Cock and Bull Story). The film also stars Harish Patel (The Buddha of Suburbia, My Son the Fanatic) and newcomers India de Beaufort and Matthew Fenton.

Five years ago Dennis (Simon Pegg) was at the altar, about to marry Libby (Thandie Newton), his pregnant fiancée. He got cold feet and ran for the hills, and he’s been going in circles ever since. When Dennis discovers Libby’s hooked up with high-flying-go-getter Whit (Hank Azaria), he realises it’s now or never. He enters a marathon to show he’s more than a quitter but then finds out just how much sweat, strain and tears it takes to run for 26 miles. Nobody gives him a chance but Dennis knows this is his only hope to be more than a running joke.

Run, Fat Boy, Run is directed by David Schwimmer (Friends, Joey) from an original screenplay from Michael Ian Black (Stella, The Pleasure of Your Company) and Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) and produced by Robert Jones (The Constant Gardner, Vera Drake, The Usual Suspects) and Sarah Curtis (Charlotte Grey, Mrs. Brown).

Entertainment Film Distributors will release the film in cinemas across the UK on 7th September 2007.
