The talk show host of 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' will be joining Robert Downey Jr. and Tina Fey in lending voices for animated feature, 'Dog Show'.
Ellen DeGeneres has signed on to "Dog Show". Making a return to animated film since providing voice to Dory in 2003's "Finding Nemo", the 51-year-old talk show host of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" has been touted to lend her voice in the Warner Bros. animation.
DeGeneres was approached by writer John Glenn and producer David Manpearl after the two developed the film's idea with Alan Schoolcraft and Brent Simons. Aside from providing voice for the feature film, the eleven-time Emmy Award-winning comedienne will also serve as the film's producer along with Glenn.
"Dog Show" is an animation pitch by "Master Mind" writers, Alan Schoolcraft and Brent Simons. Having just been picked up by Warner Bros. Pictures, the animation will resolve around a stray dog and her misfit friends who shake up the famed and pure-bred world of a Westminster-like dog show.
