First New Poster for 'Hop' with Russell Brand as the Easter Bunny
Hippity hop? Yep, Hollywood is hitting every holiday. The first new poster for Illumination Entertainment's new movie Hop has debuted on Facebook (via SlashFilm) and it's quite interesting to check out. This is our very first look at the Easter Bunny character British comedian Russell Brand voices. Described as "the world's worst houseguest," Brand plays an Easter Bunny who is accidentally hit by the car of an unemployed slacker played by James Marsden (27 Dresses, The Box), who is then forced to take the holiday creature in until he recovers. This also stars Kaley Cuoco, Elizabeth Perkins, Chelsea Handler and Hugh Laurie. Enjoy!
"As Fred struggles with the world’s worst houseguest, both will learn what it takes to finally grow up." Aww, how cute! Not really, but maybe that's just me. Directing Hop is Tim Hill (Muppets from Space, Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties, Alvin and the Chipmunks) from a screenplay by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio (Despicable Me) as well as Brian Lynch (Big Helium Dog, on Twitter as @BrianLynch). This is the first live-action movie from Illumination Ent., responsible for this year's animated flick Despicable Me, but as you can tell, this has a character that is fully animated anyway. Hop arrives in theaters everywhere starting April 1st next year.
