'The Little Prince' Movie Gets Starry With James Franco, Rachel McAdams and Marion Cotillard


The latest take on the classic French novella from 'Kung Fu Panda' director also includes Benicio Del Toro, Paul Giamatti and Jeff Bridges in the voice cast ensemble.

"The Little Prince", Mark Osborne's animated feature adaptation of the 1943 novella, will be powered by impressive voice cast ensemble. The Hollywood Reporter learns that James Franco, Rachel McAdams and Marion Cotillard have already come aboard it to lend their voices, with Benicio Del Toro, Paul Giamatti and Jeff Bridges joining them.

Written by French author Antoine de Saint-Exupery, the story of the famous book follows a pilot who crash-lands in the Sahara desert and comes across a little boy who says he is a prince fallen to Earth from his home on an asteroid. As the pilot repairs his plane, the little prince tells him extraordinary stories about his home and the foolish inhabitants of nearby asteroids.

Bridges, who stars as a Western sheriff in upcoming comedy "R.I.P.D.", is confirmed to voice the pilot. It is still unknown which roles the other stars have taken on. The Wrap reports that Mackenzie Foy likely joins the cast since the Renesmee Cullen depicter in "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part I" is in negotiations for a role in it.

Aton Soumache and Dimitri Rassam serve as co-producers under the banner of Onyx Films. Paramount Pictures is reportedly interested in handling the distribution of the upcoming animation in the U.S.
