Bratz: The Movie picture


Oscar winner Jon Voight has come onboard to play a high school principal in "Bratz: The Movie."

Taking surprising turn in his prolific acting career, Jon Voight has given his agreement to have a starring part in "Bratz: The Movie", a live-action adaptation of the popular fashion doll line of Crystal Sky Pictures and MGA Entertainment production in association with Avi Arad Productions.

Set to hit theaters on August 10 this year through Lionsgate Films, the flick finds Logan Browning, Janel Parrish, Skyler Shaye, and Nathalia Ramos as Sasha, Jade, Cloe, and Yasmin, respectively, who bond together over the ups and downs of adolescent life at Carry Nation High. Voight will portray the domineering principal whose daughter Meredith, played by Chelsea Staub, is responsible for the pressures of disparate cliques at the school.

Said by producer Avi Arad to be a story about "empowerment, believing in yourself and wish-fulfillment", pic is reportedly targeted to Bratz-nostalgic teens and their younger sisters.

"There's nothing in the movie you wouldn't want your 5-year-old to see," Arad remarked. " There are a lot of great life lessons."

"Raise Your Voice" director Sean McNamara has been appointed to helm from script written by Susan Estelle Jansen and John Doolittle. Accompanying Arad in producers' seats are Isaac Larian, Steven Paul, and Avi Arad with Paula Abdul executive producing as well as starring.
