Simon Pegg has revealed that a sequel to hit comedy Paul are unlikely.

Pegg reunited with Nick Frost earlier this year for the comedy movie and it topped the box office in the UK.

And while Pegg admits that he and Frost do have ideas for a sequel it probably won't go ahead - the amount of time it takes to create Paul being the stumbling block.

Speaking to Digital Spy Pegg said:"We were heading to Area 51 to do some promo for the film in the US and being back on the very road that we took on our research trip in 2007, we started to have ideas for this sequel.

"We came up with what we both thought was quite a fun idea. If it came up, [we would make it], the trouble is if we started writing it now it wouldn't be out for three years."

"We'd have to write it, shoot it, there's nine months of post-production to create Paul.If there's more than one Paul it'd take longer. Until the technology gets cheaper and quicker we'll probably do something else."

But Pegg and Frost will be back on the big screen later this year, well their voices will at least, in The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn - which has been directed by Steven Spielberg.

Paul is out on Blu-Ray and DVD now.
