Glee star, Chris Colfer is teamin up with fellow Golden Globe winner, Ron Perlman (Hellboy) for Marza Animation Planet Inc.’s debut animation feature film!
“The kid in me is barely being contained right now. I’m so happy to get the chance to work on my first animated film with this wonderful team,” said Colfer.
The film is titled Robodog, and is currently in pre-production. Robodog will be a 3D CG animation film directed by Oscar nominated director behind Gnomeo & Juliette, Henry F. Anderson III.
“Chris and Ron are the perfect actors to play KC and Marshall as their voices exemplify the qualities of each character. Chris has an appealing, youthful voice which fits right in with our lead character, KC, who is above all a charismatic entertainer. Ron’s voice demands authority, but also has a soft, vulnerable side which works very well for Marshall who comes across as a grouch, but is really a sensitive dog dealing with his past,” said Anderson.
Timeless Films, who is handling the international rights for the film according to Collider, released a statement about the film as they prepare to pitch the project to buyers:
ROBODOG is a classic, heart-warming adventure story about an unlikely duo who couldn’t be more different. KC (Kinetic Canine) (Colfer) is a bright, energetic but overzealous robotic dog, while MARSHALL (Perlman) is an old, curmudgeonly “real” dog, set in his ways and has little patience for anything new. This canine odd couple embarks on the adventure of a lifetime where each will learn the true nature of friendship, and not to judge a book by its cover.
Marza’s CEO, Masanao Maeda had this to say about the project, “We are absolutely ecstatic that Chris has chosen ROBODOG as his first foray into animation. Coupled with Ron’s extraordinary voiceover work, the duo’s talent will make for great chemistry onscreen. Timeless Films is by far the perfect fit for the project due to their expertise in both producing and selling animated films overseas.”
