UPDATE: GEORGE CLOONEY WILL BE THE VOICE OF MR. FOX
Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman are the latest actors to be confirmed as voices in Wes Anderson’s upcoming stop-motion animation adaptation of Fantastic Mr. Fox, by Roald Dahl. via /Film:
The settings will be very natural. We want to use real trees and real sand, but it’s all miniature.
Wow, sounds creepy as fuck. The way all children’s book adaptations should be. Kinda reminds me of the stop motion zombie flick I made in college, starring a couple dead hookers. What prima donnas they were.
Look, I know Wes Anderson’s a scarf-loving hipster intellectual and all, but after watching Hotel Chevalier, I have to admit, he’s still probably the best production designer in Hollywood. Nothing looks quite so meticulously storyboarded and choreographed as an Anderson production. One only hopes this one will have fewer disgusting lip-smacking sounds. And seriously? Jason Schwartzman and Natalie Portman? If I wanted to watch midget porn, I’d watch… uh, midget porn.
