Paul Movie with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are starring in the movie Paul, an upcoming science-fiction comedy based on a script they wrote. It's the the story of two British comic-book geeks who are traveling across the U.S. and encounter an alien outside Area 51. The film is helmed by Greg Mottola (who once brought us Superbad and Adventureland). Besides Pegg and Frost, the cast also includes Seth Rogen, Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Jane Lynch, Sigourney Weaver, Joe Lo Truglio, David Koechner, Blythe Danner, and John Carroll Lynch. The movie Paul will be released on March 18, 2011.

Here's a first look at Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in the movie Paul:
(Click on the picture to enlarge.)
"Two British sci-fi geeks whose pilgrimage takes them to America's UFO heartland accidentally meet an alien who brings them on an insane road trip that alters their universe forever.
For the past 60 years, an alien named Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen) has been hanging out at a top-secret military base. For reasons unknown, the space-traveling smart ass decides to escape the compound and hop on the first vehicle out of town -- a rented RV containing Earthlings Graeme Willy (Simon Pegg) and Clive Collings (Nick Frost).
Chased by federal agents and the fanatical father of a young woman that they accidentally kidnap, Graeme and Clive hatch a fumbling escape plan to return Paul to his mother ship. And as two nerds struggle to help, one little green man might just take his fellow outcasts from misfits to intergalactic heroes."

Sounds like a crazy movie. And if Simon Pegg is on board the project I guess it will be worth checking!
