Meanwhile, out in the New Mexican desert ... Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are busy working on their new film, Paul, directed by Greg Mattola (Superbad). In Paul, both Brits make their way across the pond to star as two geeky, sci-fi fanboys who travel to Area 51 and actually run into a real-life alien while there. Seth Rogen stars as the voice of Paul, the alien, who will be a mix of CGI and motion-capture. But that's not all -- this flick has a pretty outstanding cast, including Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig, Jason Bateman, Sigourney Weaver, Jane Lynch, Jeffrey Tambor and more. Pegg and Frost wrote the film, which is due out in 2010.

The most fascinating aspect of this little behind-the-scenes video (watch it after the jump) is getting a look at just how skinny Seth Rogen is. He's been training for some time to play the Green Hornet, and holy crap I barely recognize the cat. Nevertheless, Paul is already at the top of my most anticipated in 2010, and, well, just go watch the video after the jump to see what I mean ...
