The following IMDB post about Greg Mottola‘s Paul, which starts filming later this month, is apparently legit: “A comedy about being an alien in America, even if you’re not from outer space. Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Jason Bateman Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig and Sigourney Weaver costarring. Directed by Mottola, written by Pegg and Frost, Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner producing, Universal distributing, etc.
Paul is the story of Graham Willy (Pegg) and Clive Gollings (Frost), two sci-fi enthusiasts from the UK, who alight from a visit to San Diego Comic Con to Nevada’s Area 51 for a spot of UFO tourism. But their trip takes a “sudden and dramatic turn when the boys happen upon a crashed government vehicle containing an alien called Paul (voiced by Rogen),” blah blah. They embark upon an adventure,” blah blah. Struggling to help Paul get ET-home while trying to stay ahead of the tenacious government operative, Agent Lorenzo Zoil (Bateman) and Ruth’s zealous, shotgun-toting, bible-bashing father,” blah blah.
Paul will film in the San Diego and Santa Fe areas from June until August.
