QUICK POST: DreamWorks Animation's 'Rise of the Guardians' gets all-star cast

By Michael Cavna


Not only is "Rise of the Guardians" risen again, but it's got an all-star cast to help give it elevation.

DreamWorks Animation has just announced that Chris Pine, Hugh Jackman, Jude Law, Isla Fisher and Alec Baldwin will voice the 3-D film, Variety reports. The film, directed by Peter Ramsey and William Joyce, will be based on Joyce's upcoming series of kids' books, "The Guardians of Childhood."

Pine takes over a role that in 2009 was supposed to go to Leonardo DiCaprio, Variety says.

David Lindsay-Abaire's screenplay reportedly will feature a heroic team of childhood fantasy figures, including Pine's Jack Frost, Baldwin's Santa Claus character named North, Jackman's Easter Bunny (Bunnymund) and Fisher's tooth fairy (Tooth).

We have especially high hopes, too, because the wonderful Guillermo del Toro is attached as an executive producer.

The film is scheduled for a November 2012 release.
