The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the voice cast of G-Force has grown to include Nicolas Cage, Steve Buscemi and Tracy Morgan.
All three will serve as lead voices in the Walt Disney Pictures/Jerry Bruckheimer Films production.
In addition, Bill Nighy and Will Arnett have also joined the live-action/CG film. The film will be be the directorial debut for Oscar-winning (The Abyss and a Technical Achievement Award) visual effects supervisor Hoyt Yeatman.
From the site:
The story follows a group of ultra-intelligent animal commandoes who work for a government agency trying to prevent an evil billionaire from taking over the world. Cage will play Speckles, a mole; Buscemi will portray Bucky, a hamster; and Morgan will voice Blaster, a guinea pig. Nighy will portray an industrialist, and Arnett will play an FBI agent.
“It’s a good story; it’s unique characters, it’s half animation, half live action,” Bruckheimer told The Hollywood Reporter. “It falls right into the Disney family of films — the kind of films we make, like ‘National Treasure,’ which entertain everybody from the smallest kid to the oldest grandparent.”
G-Force is expected to be released on May 1, 2009.
