Seth Rogen, Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader Join Greg Mottola's Paul

Talk about dream casts. Seth Rogen, Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader have joined Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in Paul, the road-trip comedy about a pair of sci-fi geeks who discover an alien in Area 51.

Ingeniously, Rogen will be the voice of the alien. Pegg and Frost, of course, are the duo at the heart of the irresistible British quasi-spoofs Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.  

As if the cast weren’t enough, the movie will be directed by Greg Mottola, the helmer of Superbad and Adventureland, from a script by Pegg and Frost. It opens next year.
