Paul Gets a Synopsis
Posted 07.09.10 by Ryan
The plot of the upcoming Paul hasn't exactly been an Inception-like mystery. The comedy stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as two British comic book geeks who drive cross country and encounter an alien near Area 51. However, while it's not exactly a movie that requires an official synopsis, news on the movie has been rather thin so far this year, so we'll take it.
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 Rogen) has been hanging out at a top-secret military base. For reasons unknown, the space-traveling 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.
Paul was also written by Pegg and Frost, and was directed by Greg Mottola. There is no release date currently scheduled for the movie.
