Simon Pegg is planning to make more TV shows than movies and these are his reasons.
Simon Pegg is on a hot streak in his film career. He has supporting roles in both the Star Trek and Mission Impossible franchises, as well as a voice role in the popular Ice Age movies. Most recently, Pegg starred in Steven Spielberg’s hit Ready Player One. Things are going well for Pegg. Despite his silver screen success, the actor, comedian, and screenwriter, is planning to shift his attention towards television. Pegg explained his decision, saying:
The opportunities that television affords now are just super different. If we want to run a business, there is no money in independent cinema, unfortunately. I still want to make it and I still want to create it but the film side of Big Talk productions which made Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Pauland The World’s End really wasn’t the money-making side. It’s a really rickety world out there for filmmakers and there are no sort of mid-budget movies anymore. For financial reasons, really, television is such a fertile marketplace: that’s where it is at present.[ . . . ]
