Juliette Lewis


The Academy Award-nominated actress has signed in to fill the lead voice in the Swedish animated film helmed by Tarek Saleh.

The star of "The Other Sister" Juliette Lewis will fill on the lead voice for Swedish animated film "Metropia". According to Variety, the 34-year-old actress will join Vincent Gallo for the voicing role.

Directed by Tarek Saleh and penned by Tarik Saleh, Stig Larsson and Fredrik Edin, the film produced with $5 million budget is set in the future when the world has run out of oil. The movie that will also feature voices of Udo Kier, Stellan Skarsgard, Sofia Helin, Shanti Roney and Alexander Skarsgard is said to combine animation and live action. Additionally, it has been in development for four years and is expected to hit theaters in spring 2009.

Lewis shot to stardom came when she was 19 years old. At the time, she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Martin Scorsese's "Cape Fear" at the 64th Academy Awards. She lost the title to Mercedes Ruehl for "The Fisher King". From then on, she appeared in various films, including "What's Eating Gilbert Grape", "Mixed Nuts", "Enough" and "Starsky & Hutch". She recently can be seen in "Catch and Release" alongside Jennifer Garner.
