Simon Pegg and Nick Frost‘s upcoming comedy Paul, which is being directed by the comedy master Greg Mottola (Superbad, Adventureland) has finally started shooting in New Mexico with Bill Hader, Sigourney Weaver, Jason Bateman, Blythe Danner, Jane Lynch and Seth Rogen (who plays the alien voice of Paul and probably won’t be on set much).

Pegg and Frost have decided to take their mini-cameras with them and film some behind the scenes blogs for fans to enjoy. The first of which is an intro and then Joe Lo Truglio talks about the set “going green”

Enough with what it’s about, I’ll let Pegg and Frost introduce the series below…

You can also keep up on the news by following Pegg’s blog,, where you can find him posting news and interesting tidbits now and again.

The film is a comedy about two sci-fi geeks who embark upon a pilgrimage in a RV to the center of America’s UFO heartland: Nevada’s infamous Area 51. While in the middle of that desert, the two friends encounter a fugitive alien by the name of Paul. Somewhat reluctantly, they embark upon an adventure that will change not just their lives forever, but also the lives of the friends and enemies they encounter along the way.

We have no idea how anyone fits into anything yet, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
