Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s hello from Mexico on set of Paul

I think my arithmetic is correct when I say that Simon Pegg+Nick Frost = fun, games and pants-wetting, crying with laughter comedy.

That means this teaser blog for their new film, Paul, is well worth keeping an eye on.

I found it on their official blog site, immediately Google Readered it and would advise you to do the same.

As I understand it, the film is about two sci-fi geeks on a pilgrimage to Area 51 who have an alien encounter – also starring Seth Rogan, Sigourney Weaver, Bill Heder and Jason Bateman.

That’s some cast, and I imagine the slacker/nerd roles will be quite a stretch for the duo to portray, but hopefully they’ll pull it off. When they do, I think it means Pegg will be the coolest geek ever on top of his turn as Scotty in Star Trek.

Of course, the high spot of their creative collaborations for me is Spaced (as good as Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead have been) especially this bit about the telepathy between men.

So what do you think? Looking forward to it?
