Seth Rogen and Jason Bateman have joined the cast of “Paul.” Paul is being written by Simon Pegg & Nick Frost and will be directed by Greg Mottola. Also joining the cast is Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader and Jane Lynch. Judging by the cast and the fact that Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are writing & starring in this, this comedy should be very funny.
Pegg and Frost, who wrote the script, will play two science-fiction fanatics on a road trip whose conspiracy dreams come true when they trek to Area 51 and encounter the title character, an escaped alien.
Rogen will provide the voice of the alien.
Working Title partners Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan will produce with Nira Park of Big Talk Prods. Shooting begins in June.
