Abigail Breslin Books Three Roles


Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine) has booked three big screen roles, including a pair of animated films, reports Variety.

Breslin will star opposite Johnny Depp in Gore Verbinski’s animated adventure Rango for Paramount Pictures. The film centers on a household pet (Depp) who goes on an adventure to discover his true self.

Breslin will also voice the lead character in animated film The Wild Bunch. The story revolves around a team of common wildflowers and plants that are attacked by an evil army of genetically modified cornstalks. Willem Dafoe, Willie Nelson, Elizabeth Hurley and Chris Klein round out the voice cast.

Finally, Breslin is in negotiations to join Columbia’s horror comedy Zombieland opposite Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg and Emma Stone. The film is set in a world overrun by zombies, where two men (Harrelson, Eisenberg) join forces and cross paths with a pair of con-artist sisters (Stone, Breslin).
