“George Clooney is going to be Mr. Fox. Bill Murray has a part. Jason [Schwartzman] is doing a voice. That’s our team,” Anderson said about the 20th Century Fox project.
“It will take a couple years to do the animating,” he added. “It’s like ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ or those Christmas specials. These [characters] have fur, so it’s not like claymation.”
The film is based on Roald Dahl’s classic children’s story, which centers on a clever fox who must outwit three mean, dimwitted farmers who try their hardest to hurt Mr. Fox and his family.
Cate Blanchett was previously announced as the voice of Mr. Fox’s wife.
