Fantastic Mr. Fox is a stop motion animated film based on Roald Dahl’s book of the same name, which will be released on November 13, 2009 by 20th Century Fox Animation. It stars the voices of Meryl Streep, George Clooney, Jason Schwartzman, and Bill Murray. It is the first animated film directed by Wes Anderson. Development began in 2004 as collaboration between Anderson and Henry Selick (who worked with Anderson on the 2004 film The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou) under Revolution Studios. Revolution folded, Selick left to direct Coraline, and the project moved to Fox Animation Studios. Production began in London in 2007. Anderson chose to record voices outside of a studio.
See it in theaters this fall!
