The two actors along with Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin and Isla Fisher join voice cast of the animated film from DreamWorks.
DreamWorks Animation has announced some voice cast members for upcoming "Rise of the Guardians" and they apparently have gathered a number of A-listers. Hugh Jackman, Jude Law, Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin and Isla Fisher have signed up to lend their voice for the animation.
Jackman will play Bunnymund (the Easter Bunny), Law is Pitch (the Boogeyman), Pine will voice Jack Frost, Baldwin is North (Santa Claus) and Fisher will voice Tooth (the Tooth Fairy). Leonardo DiCaprio was originally set to voice Jack Frost when the project was announced in 2009.
"Rise of the Guardians" is based on William Joyce's book series "The Guardians of Childhood". When Pitch, an evil spirit akin to the Boogeyman, lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces for the first time to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children all over the world.
Peter Ramsey will direct the film with Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire writing the script. Made in 3-D, the adventure movie is expected to hit U.S. cinemas on November 21, 2012. Guillermo del Toro is executive producing.
