English actor and comedian Simon Pegg has arrived in Perth to work on the Australian film, Kill Me Three Times.
The star of Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead and the recently released The World's End tweeted on Friday: "G'day Perth. Let's make a film."
Pegg seemed to enjoy Perth's sunshine on Sunday too, tweeting: "Beautiful day in Perth, WA. I might even leave the hotel, if I can find the exit."
An hour later he joked: "People keep recommending a bar called The Lucky Shag. Australia, you beautiful bitch, I don't think I could love you more at this point."
The Lucky Shag is a waterfront bar in Perth's CBD.
Written by James McFarland and steered by Red Dog director Kriv Stenders, Kill Me Three Times is a crime thriller set in the Australian surfing town of Eagle's Nest.
It tells the story of a young woman linked to three tales of murder, blackmail and revenge.
Pegg will play a murderer in the film, in stark contrast to his previous good guy roles.
