There hasn't been much word regarding Simon Pegg's newest film, Paul, about two British slackers who decide to go to Area 51 in search of aliens after a trip to Comic-Con only to discover an actual alien. There's been one still released, which doesn't really show very much, and actor Jason Bateman talked about getting a gift from his Paul co-stars, but that's about it.
Apparently, even Pegg is aware of the lack of news, because he recently offered an update to his fans in the forum of his web-site.
Thought you might like to hear how things are going on the Paul front. It's been a while since we wrapped now and with the absence of Lance B's video blogs, I guess things must seem to have gone very quiet. Rest assured the good (space)ship Paul is progressing apace. Our venerable and brilliant director Greg Mottola »

Sometimes a movie comes along that we know precious little about, except that we might want to keep an eye on this thing. “Paul” is one such project – a random mix of comedy and sci-fi starring fan favorites Simon Pegg, Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig and Sigourney Weaver. Mix in the fact that it’s written by Pegg and his “Shaun of the Dead” partner Nick Frost, and directed by “Superbad” helmer Greg Mottola, and the recently-wrapped flick could be something special when it hits theaters next year.
Oh, and did I mention that it also stars Seth Rogen as an alien?
“That was a great time,” Rogen told us recently when we asked him about the flick, which has teased fans with some brief footage depicting the “Knocked Up” star goofing around on-set in a motion-capture suit. “Just hanging out with those guys was a good time.”

Labor Day weekend is coming up, and it's a holiday that marks the end of the summer movie season along with summer itself. All the kids are heading back to the classroom for another dreaded year of school and (for those in L.A. like myself) the weather starts to cool... hopefully. While fall usually isn't seen as a cinematic hotbed, with the blockbuster summer season over, there are still plenty of quality films to check out at the box office. This year we have Megan Fox's possessed body, a sensational animated film and a new zombie adventure. There's a lot more that I'm looking forward to this fall, so here is a comphrehensive look at what you can expect from this fall movie season.

Simon Pegg (Scotty) and Nick Frost, of Shawn of the Dead fame, give us a dandy behind the scenes video view of their new movie “Paul”. “Paul” is a buddy road movie where two nerds and/or geeks (you can be both but not at the same time) try desperately to return an alien named Paul to his spaceship after encountering him during a trip to a Sci-Fi convention. As our loyal readers may or may not know, my first date with my wife was at Shawn of the Dead, so Nick and Simon are kind of like family to me. Paul also stars a bevy of Hollywood’s greatest comedic talent. Joining Simon and Nick are Jason Bateman, Sigourney weaver, Bill Hader, Seth Rogen and a host of others. Paul is directed by Superbad’s Greg Mottola. Thanks Io9. »
