Adam Devine (The Righteous Gemstones), Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2) and Ken Jeong (Crazy Rich Asians) have signed on to the voice cast of Extinct, an animated feature from director David Silverman (The Simpsons) and China Lion, HB Wink, Huayi Tencent Entertainment Ltd, Tolerable Entertainment and Timeless Films.
The adventure comedy follows Op and Ed, two flummels (donut-shaped animals) who accidentally time-travel from 1835 to modern-day Shanghai. There they discover traffic, trans fats, and worst of all, that flummels are now extinct. It’s up to this bumbling pair to save themselves and their species… and, just maybe, change the course of history.
“We are thrilled to be working on this amazing project and introduce the world to flummels,” said Ralph Kamp of the UK-based Timeless. “The producers have put together a world class team and we know audiences worldwide will fall in love with these characters. We are really looking forward to screening the first footage from this incredibly funny film to our distributors at Toronto.”
Also featuring in the cast of Extinct are Jim Jefferies (The Jim Jefferies Show), Catherine O’Hara (Schitt’s Creek), Reggie Watts (The Late Late Show with James Corden) and Alex Borstein (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel).
