Ready for more voice acting after that in "Flushed Away", Ian McKellen is set to fill in the narrator role in "Stardust", a fantasy adventure feature of Paramount Pictures production, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed.
Directed by "Layer Cake" helmer Matthew Vaughn, the project has wrapped its production in the fall with cast that includes Claire Danes, Sienna Miller, Michelle Pfeiffer, plus Robert De Niro. McKellen himself is attached to record his part during post-production before the flick's scheduled release date on July 27 this year.
Adapted from the best-selling graphic novel by Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess, the movie concerns a young man who embarks on a journey into the Faerie realm where he encounters witches, goblins, gnomes, talking animals, and evil trees in order to win the heart of a woman whom he falls for. Gaiman is also producing alongside Vaughn, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, and Michael Dreyer.
