Have you ever found yourself sat at work hatching the perfect 'fool-proof' scam to make a million - this is exactly what comic actors Simon Pegg and David Schwimmer find themselves doing in the eccentric black comedy Big Nothing as they try and pull off the biggest blackmailing scam of the decade.
Directed by Jean-Baptiste Andrea and supported by rising British star Alice Eve, the hilarious Big Nothing is available to buy and rent on DVD on 16th April 2007 from Pathé Distribution Ltd.
Charlie (Schwimmer, Friends) is a frustrated, out of work teacher who finds himself working the job from hell in an IT support call centre. When he meets eccentric technician Gus (Pegg, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) his life takes an exciting turn - for the worst!
Gus has discovered a priest with a penchant for internet porn, and hatches the ultimate 'fool-proof' scam - to blackmail him for a large sum of money! Gus wants Charlie to join him and offers him two options: pick the blue Smartie and go back to your old life, pick the red Smartie and be a free man - Charlie picks red and his life is thrown onto an exciting rollercoaster of chaos!
Things start badly and rapidly go from 'extremely bad' to 'unimaginably bad' when Gus' money hungry and generally hostile girlfriend Josie (Eve, Starter for 10, Losing Gemma) wants in on the scam. Mix that with a serial killer on the loose in the local area and you have a recipe for disaster ...
As the body count starts to mount up, the plan starts to spiral out of control as each try to double and triple cross the other to get the upper hand - resulting in a mad capped adventure with hilarious consequences.
Big Nothing on DVD is packed full of special features including commentary by director Jean-Baptiste Andrea, Simon Pegg and Alice Eve, an enthralling look at behind-the-scenes in Holy Molely: How Big Nothing was made and a Simon Pegg Video Diary.
