Our favorite actor, Bill Hader, might be reprising his alien past in Paul, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's science fiction comedy that revolves around a comic convention.


Greg Mottola will be directing this feature comedy that is now being rumored as heavy on CG and possibly rated R. As we reported months ago, Pegg and Frost will play two slackers, who go to San Diego Comic-Con and then decide to take a road trip to Area 51. There, they meet a small alien named Paul, who needs their help to get home.

CHUD picked up on a Bill Simmons report, featuring the comic genius Bill Hader. According to the interview, Hader mentioned he might be working with Mottola and starring as the alien, Paul, as well.

Gotta say this film just keeps getting better and better. I can't wait to see what Hader does with this alien, since his SNL alien work is still the best thing on late-night TV.



Is this the 3rd part of the so-called Ice Cream Cornet trilogy? Or just some stand alone Frost/Pegg?
