DreamWorks is flying high after announcing the a impressive, star-studded voice cast for its latest animated adventure, "Turbo."
So, just how A-list are we talking? Let's see, the lineup currently includes: Snoop Dogg, Paul Giamatti, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Pena, Luis Guzman (seriously, that guy is in everything these days!), Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz and Kurtwood Smith.
They join Blake Lively's main squeeze Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Reynolds, who loans his pipes for the titular role of Turbo, an ordinary garden snail with dreams of racing greatness, The Hollywood Reporter relates. We like him already. Too bad his obsession with speed and all things fast has made him an oddity and outsider in the slow and cautious snail community — and cast him as a constant embarrassment to his less eccentric older brother. (Nothing like being a garden snail and a black sheep to really get you down.)
One day, however, he is suddenly gifted with the power of amazing speed, which spurs him to embark on a quest that will lead him to racing in the Indianapolis 500. Pretty awesome story, right?
We can't wait to see that snail bust a move around the racetrack, but with a release date of July 2013, the studio better get a move on, and fast.
