Pegg stars as brash journalist Sidney Young in his latest film
Film and TV actor Simon Pegg has signed a publishing deal worth seven figures to write three non-fiction books.
The Hot Fuzz star's first title will be a memoir about his career and is due to come out next year.
The second book is expected to be humorous, while the third is a "highly illustrated, lavishly-produced title", according to Hodder and Stoughton.
Pegg, who is to play Scotty in next year's Star Trek film, stars in How to Lose Friends and Alienate People.
The Hollywood comedy topped the UK and Ireland box office this week.
Pegg's memoirs, which have yet to be titled, will cover his career from his first stand-up performance to working with collaborators Jessica Stevenson and Nick Frost on projects including Spaced and Shaun of The Dead.
His subsequent books are due to be published in 2010 and 2011.
The publisher plans to sell the rights to the books in the US, where he is gaining recognition thanks to his work in Hollywood.
