Hooray! Simon Pegg and Nick Frost together again on the silver screen! Deadline reveals that the British comedy duo — who are best known for writing and starring in Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz and appearing together in the UK television series, Spaced — will next star in director Greg Mottola‘s humorous new alien flick, Paul.
Slated to his U.S. theaters on March 18, Graeme Willy (Pegg) and Clive Gollings (Frost) are two thirty-something comic book enthusiasts who take to the open road in search of Area 51. During their trip, they meet a friendly alien named Paul, played by Seth Rogen. All hell breaks loose when Graeme and Clive work to save their new little buddy from pesky authorities. Paul, which was penned by Pegg and Frost, also features Kristen Wiig, Jason Bateman and Jane Lynch.
