According to Variety Seth Rogen, Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader and Jane Lynch have joined the cast of Paul.
The road trip laffer stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost and will be directed by Greg Mottola.
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.
This is Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s next joint outing after Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz so I have high expectations. Adding Rogen and Bateman to the mix will just add to the greatness.
Paul will be released sometime next year.
