Carrey to voice Dr. Seuss' Horton

Postby TNPihl » Tue Sep 12, 2006 11:31 pm

Jim Carrey has been cast in a 3D-CG animated adaptation of Dr. Seuss' beloved 1954 childrens book "Horton Hears a Who!". The film adaptation (produced by Blue Sky Studios/Twentieth Century Fox Animation) is set to be released in May 2008.

The story follows the loveable elephant, Horton (Jim Carrey), who hears voices coming from a speck of dust. Horton does everything in his power to save the tiny community. Steve Carell will voice the mayor of Who-ville, a distinguished figure of a very small size, too small to be seen by the elephant's eyes.

Jimmy Hayward and Steve Martino are directing "Horton Hears a Who!" from a script adaptation written by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio. The executive producers are Audrey Geisel, Chris Wedge and Chris Meledandri, and the producer is Twentieth Century Fox Animation production executive Bob Gordon. Twentieth Century Fox Animation VP John Cohen is overseeing the project.

"Horton Hears a Who!" was adapted into a half-hour animated TV special by MGM Animation/Visual Arts in 1970, directed by Chuck Jones and with narration by Hans Conried.

:shock: It's my dream coming true, Carrey & Carell sitting in a ... studio ... It's a shame it's not a real-life movie, but who knows ... yeah, Who indeed ... it's might happen once.

So, since I'm a animation-fan (altough I thinks there's an overload 3D picks right now) I'm looking forward to it. Fox had the hilarious 'Ice Age', not-so-great 'Robots' (animation looked good) and 'Everyone's Hero' where they finally get it. 3D animation doesn't need to be a comedy all the way.

So, yeah, I'm looking forward to it ... and I'm glad Jim does a voice once.

Here the story's aren't famous or something so ... those Who's ... are they the same Who's that lived in Whoville? Maybe the Grinch shows up. :p

Sorry to tell you that but I believe voice-over actors usually record one at a time in the studio! :(

I hope this won't turn out like The Incredible Mr.Limpet or Over The Hedge and Jim finally gets to do it!
You know what the best part is? CG characters nowadays actually ressemble their 'voice'. Really looking forward to that, but you already know that, why would I feel any different? :wink:

Cool. It shouldnt take long for him to do the Recording. Then he can get back to doing the things he does best, as well as having done a voice recording.
