Catherine Deneuve and Gena Rowlands will do voice acting for the English-language version of a French animated picture titled "Persepolis."

Set to work hand in hand, French actress Catherine Deneuve and "The Skeleton Key" star Gena Rowlands have both agreed to lend their voices in the English-language version of the French animated film feature "Persepolis."

Taking the same duty as she did in the original version, Deneuve is billed to voice the lead character's mother while Rowlands will voice her grandmother. Vincent Paronnaud and Marjane Satrapi have been in charge to both write and direct with Xavier Rigault and Marc-Antoine Rob producing.

Adapted from Satrapi's autobiographical graphic novels "Persepolis" and "Persepolis 2", the picture follows a precocious girl as she grows up in Iran during the Islamic revolution. Slated for completion in April, it will come up in North America under Sony Pictures Classics.
