Zack Snyder's Guardians of Ga'Hoole Voice Cast Revealed
Although it's considerably hard to take our mind off of Watchmen at the moment, we can't forget that one of Zack Snyder's other upcoming projects is an animated version of the children's books Guardians of Ga'Hoole from Scholastic. We first announced that Snyder was directing the animated film way back in April, which is slated for release sometime in 2010. The Daily Telegraph reveals today that not only is Australian actor Ryan Kwanten providing his voice for the film, but so is Hugh Jackman and Hugo Weaving. It looks like Snyder is rounding up one hell of a voice cast for his first animated feature film.
The movie is based on a New York Times bestselling series of books written by Kathryn Lasky. The books are set in the Forest of Tyto where Barn Owls live in peace until their kingdom is threatened by an evil that could destroy their home. The script for the adaptation was written by John Orloff ("Band of Brothers", A Mighty Heart) and John Collee (Master and Commander, Happy Feet). Although I don't expect this to get anything other than a PG rating, I've been waiting to see darker and more adult animated movies, somewhat like Shane Acker's 9, and hoped Snyder would bring us the first one like that. Only time will tell!
