Official Plot Synopsis for Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's PAUL
The official plot synopsis for the new Simon Pegg and Nick Frost sci-fi comedy Paul had been released! We already had a general idea of what the movie would be about, but now it's set in stone. The movie was directed by Greg Mottola (Superbad, Adventureland) and also has an alien character voiced by Seth Rogan. The film also co-stars Jane Lynch, Jason Bateman, Sigourney Weaver, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Blythe Danner, and Jeffrey Tambor.
Here is the official plot synopsis:
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reunite for the comedy adventure Paul as two sci-fi geeks whose pilgrimage takes them to America’s UFO heartland. While there, they accidentally meet an alien who brings them on an insane road trip that alters their universe forever. For the past 60 years, an alien named Paul (voiced by Seth Rogan) has been hanging out at a top-secret military base. For reasons unknown, the space-travelling smart ass decides to escape the compound and hop on the first vehicle out of town—a rented RV containing Earthlings Graeme Willy (Pegg) and Clive Collings (Frost). Chased by federal agents and the fanatical father of a young woman that they accidentally kidnap, Graeme and Clive hatch a fumbling escape plan to return Paul to his mother ship. And as two nerds struggle to help, one little green man might just take his fellow outcasts from misfits to intergalactic heroes.
It's got a great cast and crew so this should end up being a great film, especially for us geeks. It was revealed that there will be a little panel for this film at comic-con this year, so we'll be looking forward to catching that. The film has wrapped shooting so they should have some footage from the film to show to the fans.
