Ewan McGregor and Richard Griffiths are joining the voice cast of WWII spoof animated comedy "Jackboots on Whitehall."
Making the film indeed a high-profile project, Ewan McGregor and Richard Griffiths have both willingly signed on to lend their voices in "Jackboots on Whitehall", a satirical animated version of World War II coming from Britain's Swipe Films.
Presenting a story which concerns on what would have happened had the Germans invaded Britain, the flick will see McGregor fill the voice of a heroic Scottish farmhand who becomes a resistance leader against the invader with Griffiths voicing the Luftwaffe leader Hermann Goering.
Prior to the pair's inclusion, the film's voice cast has already featured some notable names like Rosamund Pike as Daisy, Alan Cumming as Hitler, and Timothy Spall as Churcill. First-time helmer Edward McHenry is on board to direct from the script he himself wrote alongside his brother Rory McHenry while Frank Mannion is set to produce.
