Simon Pegg muses about the possibility of Paul sequel

20 June 2011

Simon Pegg who is best known for films including Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and the reboot to Star Trek has spoken out about the possibility of revisiting his Alien road trip sci-fi adventure Paul.

In an interview with Collider the British born actor said “If we could think of a story that was absolutely justifiable, that was worth doing, I would do it again. But so I could have that experience again and enjoy working with people, the camaraderie and the friendship.”

Pegg served as writer and producer on the film with regular collaborator Nick Frost said that they even have a story idea for a possible follow-up.

“Nick and I have this idea that we had out on the way to Area 51 that was really funny, it was like oh, this could be great. It would cost an absolute fucking fortune. If it involved more than one Paul, it would mean that we’d have to have twice that budget again. The idea was it was called Pauls. Again, it was like From Dusk Til Shaun, that title is so good we have to make that film."

Pegg will next be seen in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol and confirmed that his presence in the fourth instalment is considerably larger than M:I III adding “I had two days on Mission: Impossible III, that was it. I did seven months on the fourth one so yeah, I go back.”
