Comic Con The Film?

Published on May 28th, 2009

pegg-frostMy favorite comedy team of all time is Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Spaced, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz,), and the duo are joining  director Greg Mottola (Superbad) on a film about two British comic book geeks who travel to America for the San Diego Comic Con fan convention. Seth Rogen has also joined the cast along with Jason Bateman, Jane Lynch, Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader.

Rogen will  voice the titular character, Paul, an alien who escapes from Area 51 and accompanies the geeks on their trip across America.

Kristen Wiig will play a Christian girl whom the trio accidentally kidnap. Bateman will portray the government operative, Agent Lorenzo Zoil. No word yet on when this film is due (my guess is sometime next year before Comic Con) or the name of the project, but I can tell you from watching Spaced over and over again that this film is going to rock.
