'Hot Fuzz' trivia and fun facts

His director Edgar Wright and his two protagonists, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, had worked together before in the film 'Shaun of the Dead' and the TV series 'Spaced'.
Wright developed the script with Pegg, and said he wanted to write and direct a "buddy cop" film because "there is no tradition of such films in the UK ... We think that all the other countries have a own tradition with regard to these action movies and we do not".
Before starting the script, the two authors saw nearly 140 cop films and made about 50 interviews with law enforcement professionals.
Hot Fuzz has two different soundtracks created after its release, one for UK and one for USA.
