Gad, Hader and Hudson Join DreamWorks Animation’s Me and My Shadow


First announced in late 2010, DreamWorks Animation’s Me and My Shadow has just announced its voice cast. The Hollywood Reporter says that the mix of CGI and hand drawn animation will star Josh Gad (“The Book of Mormon”), Bill Hader (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Paul) and Kate Hudson (Almost Famous, Something Borrowed).

The film tells the story of Stan (Hader), an extremely frustrated shadow who yearns for a dynamic life, but happens to be stuck with Stanley Grubb (Gad), the world’s most boring human. Finally pushed to the brink, Shadow Stan breaks the singular rule of the Shadow World – “They lead, we follow” – and takes control of Stanley!

Hudson will play a non-shadow love interest to the pair.

Written by Tom Astle and Matt Ember, Me and My Shadow is directed by Mark Dindal and will arrive in theaters on November 8, 2013.
