Nicolas Cage and Ryan Reynolds team up for new animated film
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Dreamworks animation is moving forward with the film THE CROODS and have enlisted the voice talents of Nicolas Cage and Ryan Reynolds. In the film, Cage will voice Crug, a caveman that has to try to keep his family safe after an earthquake destroys their home. Reynolds will play a free-thinking nomad that charms Crug’s family and especially his daughter. Obviously, their personalities clash and comedy ensues. Kirk DeMicco and Chris Sanders (LILO AND STITCH) will write and direct the film that is scheduled for a 3D release in March of 2012.
I’ve learned not to rely too heavily on a plot synopsis when judging an animated film, so I won’t even bother trying to decide if I’m interested in this. When I read the synopsis for HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON, I had zero interest and then when I saw the trailer, I thought it looked pretty good. But I do like Reynolds as a voice actor, especially in this type of role.
