In next year’s Paul from filmmaker Greg Mottola, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost will assume the role of sci-fi nerds who stumble onto an alien voiced by Seth Rogen and take him along on a road trip to find his spaceship and go home. How cute, right? Well not quite.
The official synopsis for Paul describes him as a “space-travelling smart ass.” Combine that with Rogen’s voice along with the type of dialogue Frost and Pegg deliver and Paul could be more American Dad than E.T. It could even land an R-rating even though the first look at Paul in the promotional poster below makes it look like a goofy family comedy.
Paul begins his road trip with Frost and Pegg on March 18, 2011.
