Anne Hathaway, Neil Patrick Harris and Rodrigo Santoro are negotiating to lend their voices to “Rio,” the next collaboration between Blue Sky Studios, Fox Animation and director Carlos Saldanha, all of whom are riding the $882 million global tsunami of “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.”
“Rio,” which follows the adventures of a nerdy macaw who lights out from his small-town Minnesota cage for the exotic Summer Olympic city of Rio de Janeiro, is scheduled for an April 8, 2011, release. Like “Dinosaurs,” it will be filmed in 3D digital animation.
Chris Jenkins (“Surf’s Up”) and Bruce Anderson (“Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who!”) are producing.
Hathaway and Harris have done animation before. Hathaway voiced the lead role of Red in the Weinstein Co. release “Hoodwinked!” in 2005, and Harris voiced a character in Sony Pictures Animation’s “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.”
Fox would not confirm casting. (more…)
