Seth Rogen and Jason Bateman working for Simon Pegg's "Paul"
Longtime collaborators Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are making their first "Hollywood" movie with the new comedy "Paul" and have recruited an intriguing cast to bring it to life.
Variety reports Seth Rogen, Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader and Jane Lynch will star in the Universal and Working Title Films production for director Greg Mottola ("Superbad").
The picture finds Pegg and Frost playing two Sci-Fi geeks whose conspiracy dreams come true when they arrive at the notorious Area 51 only to discover a real life alien (voiced by Rogen).
"Paul" is the first screenwriting collaboration for Pegg and Frost but the duo have previously appeared together onscreen in the films "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz" and the cult British TV series "Spaced." The pair will also appear in Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's motion-captured "The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn."
Pegg recently appeared as the new incarnation of Montgomery Scott in the domestic blockbuster "Star Trek" and will be heard as the voice of Buck in "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs" this summer.
Both Rogen and Bateman have new pictures hitting theaters this summer. Rogen will star opposite Adam Sandler in buddy Judd Apatow's "Funny People." Bateman stars in Mike Judge's "Extract" this September and has the ensemble comedy "Couples Retreat" in the can. He'll also reunite with his "Juno" director Jason Reitman this December with "Up in the Air."
Mottola previously worked with "Saturday Night Live's" Hader and Wiig on his last film, "Adventureland."
It's unclear when "Paul" will begin production.
