Sigourney Weaver is, apparently, joining the cast of Greg Mottola‘s new film, Paul. The film stars Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Seth Rogen, Jason Bateman, and Kristen Wiig. I don’t quite see how Weaver fits in with that lot but I have to say I’m eager to find out. We all know she has a great comedic side, so it will be interesting to see how she mixes with this new generation of comedians.
The writers of the movie are the hilarious duo, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, from Shaun of the Dead. The story is about two British guys who decide to take a trip to Area 51. On their adventure, they encounter an alien named Paul (Seth Rogen), who is trying to escape from the U.S. Government. While the three are trying to escape from a government agent (Jason Bateman), they encounter a crazy lady who claims to have witnessed Paul’s crash landing. It is speculated that Weaver is to star as the crazy lady.
What do you think? Do think Sigourney Weaver fits the rest of the cast?
