Looks like funnymen Simon Pegg and Mike Myers will be practicing keeping a straight face for their next roles.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, they are set to star in Terminal, a thriller from director Vaughn Stein, adding to a cast that already includes Margot Robbie (Suicide Squad), Max Irons (The Riot Club) and Dexter Fletcher (Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, Kick-Ass).
