Seth Rogen, Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader and Jane Lynch have joined Simon Pegg and Nick Frost‘s Paul. The Universal and Working Title Films road-trip comedy was written by Pegg and Frost — who are also starring — and will be directed by Greg Mottola.
Pegg and Frost are to play two sci-fi fanatics whose conspiracy dreams come true when they encounter an escaped alien at Area 51. Rogen will provide the voice of the alien, Variety reports.
A family reunion of sorts, Paul re-teams Pegg and Frost after Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, while Rogen last worked with Mottola on Superbad in which he played one of a pair of cops with Hader. Hader, in turn, just worked with Mottola and Wiig on Adventureland.
