Fun Academy Motion Pictures today announced that Logan Lerman has enlisted for the upcoming animated feature Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero, which tells the incredible true story of the United States Army’s most decorated dog.
Lerman will voice Robert Conroy, a WWI “doughboy” whose life is forever changed when a little dog with a stubby tail wanders into training camp. Conroy gives his new friend a name, a family, and a chance to embark on the adventure that would define a century. The stray goes on to become a hero of the First World War, and the first canine promoted to the rank of Sergeant in American history.
“We are very fortunate to find a young man like Logan Lerman who can breathe such life into the story of an ordinary man and his ordinary dog who, together, perform extraordinary feats of valor,” said Richard Lanni, co-writer and executive producer.
Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero is being directed by Bibo Bergeron (Shark Tale) and also features the voice talents of Helena Bonham Carter and Gerard Depardieu. It is set for release on April 13th 2018.
