Pegg and Frost Helping 'Paul' Return to Alien Homeworld

Hey, fellow Simon Pegg/Nick Frost fans, this Variety article has shed some new light on their upcoming project with Superbad director Greg Mottola:

Story revolves around two British slackers who, after visiting Comic-Con, go on a road trip to Area 51, where they encounter a small alien named Paul, who enlists them to help him find his way home. Pegg and Frost penned the screenplay for the pic, which will shoot in March.

In keeping with Pegg/Frost tradition, we also know of one scene that's virtually assured in this dangerously Mac and Me-resembling premise: the alien Paul adorably requesting a Cornetto.*

*I'm aware this isn't officially part of the Shaun of the Dead/Hot Fuzz/The World Ends "blood and ice cream trilogy", but if it were, Cornetto could be the new Reese's Pieces in the tradition of treats popularized by home-seeking movie aliens.
