DreamWorks Animation’s upcoming family comedy Boss Baby has assembled its voice cast, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow, Patton Oswalt, Steve Buscemi and Miles Bakshi have all signed on for roles in the project alongside Alec Baldwin.
Boss Baby is being directed by Tom McGrath (Madagascar, Megamind) and is based upon Marla Frazee’s award-winning picture book, which “centers on a seven-year-old who decides he has to win back the love of his parents after the arrival of his brother, a bossy baby, who has uncanny ways of hogging the spotlight. In the process, the brothers discover a secret plot and must unite to save their parents and restore order to the world.”
“Tom and [producer Ramsey Ann Naito] have brought together a film that is not only hilarious and heartwarming, but is relatable for anyone who has ever been a parent, a baby, a sibling or a boss,” said DreamWorks Animation co-presidents of feature animation Bonnie Arnold and Mireille Soria. “We believe the best animated stories are the ones that are rooted in personal experience, and then set in an imaginative world that can only be created through the wonder and art of animation.”
Boss Baby is slated for release on March 10th, 2017.
