The script for Simon Pegg & Nick Frost’s next teaming, “Paul”, is absolutely brilliant. It’s such a great read. If the film turns out half-as-well (and they’re able to get Michael Biehn to come onboard – of course most of you’ll have no idea what I mean by that; let’s just say, ‘Reese’ plays a pivotal part in the film), it’s going to be a classic. The flick tells of two science-fiction buffs who, whilst on the way to a convention, wind up in Area 51 and encounter an alien – the titular Paul.
Well, the trades have just announced that Seth Rogen has come aboard to voice Paul. Great choice too. Has one of the most unmistakable voices in the biz right now. Can just imagine him in the role right now.. he’s going to be great. Trust me.
Also aboard the film are (a few more Apatow faves) Jane Lynch (“Knocked Up”), Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”), and Bill Hader (“The Pineapple Express”).
The film will be directed by “Superbad” helmer Greg Mottola (whose latest film “Adventureland”, coincidentally, is released in Australia tomorrow) and captained by Working Title and Universal.
