Legendary actor Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange) has joined the cast of Amazon Studios’ Truth Seekers, a new horror-comedy series from Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.
The series which begins filming this week in the UK follows a team of part-time paranormal investigators who team up to uncover paranormal activity and phenomena across the United Kingdom. Before long, however, they begin to discover a conspiracy that could bring on Armageddon, and it’s up to the bumbling crew to thwart the end of the world.
Pegg and Frost are hardly newcomers to mixing genres. Shaun of the Dead, in which the two starred, may very well be one of the finest horror-comedies ever made.
As for McDowell, all we know at this point is that he will be playing a character named Richard. The actor join Pegg and Frost in a cast that includes Samson Kayo (Timewasters), Emma D’Arcy (Wanderlust), Susan Wokoma (Crazyhead), and Julian Barratt (The Mighty Boosh).
There is no official release date for the series as of yet, but with filming underway, we’re most likely looking at a Spring/Summer 2020 release date. The series will air on Amazon’s streaming platform.
