Song From the OST


  • The first draft of the script included a love interest for Nicholas named Victoria. She was cut from subsequent drafts, but a good amount of her dialogue was given to Danny, often without any changes.
  • Nick Frost only agreed to do the film if he could get to name his character. He was also asked to watch over twenty action films to warm up for the role. He only watched one, Bad Boys II (2003).
  • Edgar Wright originally wanted to name the movie “Hott Fuzz”. Simon Pegg objected to the suggestion, fearing he would have to explain the additional “t” in “Hott” in every single interview about the film.
  • In their DVD commentary, Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg revealed that they fully expected the intentional misspellings of newspaper headlines to turn up in the IMDb’s “Goofs” section.
  • Sampson the dog (who played Saxon the dog) was not allowed to become a real police dog, as he was considered too friendly.


Good Luck Nicholas
