Andy Garcia, Salma Hayek, and Drew Barrymore are among the well-known names put in the voice cast of Raja Gosnell's "South of the Border."
Big names are lending their voices for Walt Disney Pictures' comedy "South of the Border." The Hollywood Reporter has brought in news stating that a handful of Latino actors consisting of Andy Garcia, Salma Hayek, George Lopez, Cheech Marin, Paul Rodriguez, Placido Domingo, Edward James Olmos, and Eddie Sotelo have all been submitted into the film's voice cast with "Lucky You" star Drew Barrymore leading the lineup.
Also starring Piper Perabo in human role, the flick follows the adventures of a pampered Beverly Hills chihuahua named Chloe as she gets lost during a vacation in Mexico and is in need of assistance from her friends to find way back home. Perabo will play Chloe's owner while the dog's voice will be provided by Barrymore.
Garcia, in the meantime, is plotted to fill in the voice of a desperate German shepherd who was kicked off the police force because he lost his sense of smell. As for Hayek and Lopez, the two will voice Chloe's spirit guide and a macho romantic Chihuahua called Papi who will do anything for the love of Chloe, respectively.
Pic will be directed by Los Angeles-born filmmaker Raja Gosnell who is set to helm from script written by Jeffrey Bushell and AnaLisa LaBianco. Handling producing matters are David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman and John Jacobs, who last produced figure-skating comedy "Blades of Glory" for Paramount Pictures.
