Screen Daily reports that Pegg has come on board the Australian thriller Kill Me Three Times from Red Dog director Kriv Stenders. Pegg joins the action set in a sun-drenched Australian town where a young woman is the link between murder, blackmail, and revenge.

The flick formerly had director Greg McLean in the director's chair with Alice Braga (Repo Men), Abbie Cornish (Sucker Punch), Ben Mendelsohn (Killer Elite), and Sullivan Stapleton (Animal Kingdom) originally set to star. But things change...

Cargo Entertainment is handling international pre-sales in Cannes. Tania Chambers, Laurence Malkin, and Share Stallings produce the project, which is set to commence shooting on September 16 in Western Australia. Hopscotch / eOne will distribute in Australia and New Zealand.
