Shaun meets the Watchmen

Simon Pegg, now a bit of a sensation thanks to his wild horror hit "Shaun of the Dead", could be suiting up for a Superhero flick next.

In an interview with UGO, the Brit comic said he could be up for a role in David Hayter’s upcoming film.

SIMON: Yeah, I’ve just read a book called Blankets [by Craig Thompson], and I just reread Watchmen because I got sent the screenplay.

UGO: Did they send it to you to maybe play a part?

SIMON: We know the producer, Lloyd Levin, and I told him I was interested, so he sent it along as something to think about. I would just love to play Rorschach.

UGO: What superpower would you want to have?

SIMON: Flight.

Thanks to Superhero Hype for the heads up!
