And while Apatow had a guiding hand, with the film initially sprung from a development deal the producer struck with co-writer/star Kristen Wiig after her scene-stealing turn in the Apatow-directed "Knocked Up," the man behind the camera is none other than Paul Feig.

    Simon Pegg Says 'Paul' Is 'Easy Rider' With Aliens Or 'The Daytrippers' With E.T.

    How The Film Doubles As Seth Rogen Biopic & More We Learned In Our Chat With The Cast & DirectorTwo nerds, after spending the time of their life at the geek haven that is Comic-Con, soon find themselves in the epic situation of having to get an alien to his homeship.
