Be still our spacey hearts. There is no doubt that Sigourney Weaver is the ultimate Queen of Aliens. She's the unstoppable Ripley, the saucy Gwen DeMarco, and now she's heading to Area 51. But not just any 51 -- the infamous UFO hotspot as seen through the eyes of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.

Variety reports that Weaver has signed on for Paul (the upcoming comedy mentioned here and here) along with Reno 911's Joe Lo Truglio and Blythe Danner, who seems to be comedy crazy these days. Paul focuses on two science fiction geeks who decide to make a pilgrimage to the otherworldly hotspot, and in the process, end up running into an alien named Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen). Unfortunately, there's no word on who Weaver and the rest will play. Me, I'm hoping she's some sort of tough alien-wrangler determined to recapture Paul. Anything less would be a waste of her experience.

With these names (plus Bateman, Wiig, Hader, and Lynch from the last round), this film is going to be a puupuu platter of comedic talent, and the first time the geeky Brit duo face off against the world of American comedy. How do you think they'll fare?
