The Weinsten CO & Rainmaker Entertainment have announced their voice cast for “Escape from Planet Earth.”

Check out the press release below!

The Weinstein Company (TWC) and Rainmaker Entertainment announced today the all-star voice cast for ESCAPE FROM PLANET EARTH which includes Brendan Fraser, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jessica Alba, Rob Corddry, James Gandolfini and Craig Robinson.  The 3D animated family comedy is currently in full production. The announcement was made today by Donna Gigliotti, TWC’s President of Production, and Catherine Winder, President and Executive Producer, Rainmaker Entertainment.  Both Gigliotti and Winder serve as producers on the animated feature film.

The flick is being directed by Cal Brunker, best known for “Despicable Me” and “Horton Hears a Who!”

Brendan Fraser will voice the role of Scorch Supernova, a national hero to the blue alien population of planet Baab. This is a summary of the plot, straight off the release:

A master of daring rescues, Scorch pulls off astonishing feats with the quiet aid of his nerdy, by-the-rules brother, Gary (Rob Corddry), head of mission control at BASA. When BASA’s no-nonsense chief Lena (Jessica Alba) informs the brothers of an SOS from a notoriously dangerous planet, Scorch rejects Gary’s warnings and bounds off for yet another exciting mission. But when Scorch finds himself caught in a fiendish trap set by the evil Shanker (James Gandolfini), it’s up to scrawny, risk-adverse Gary to do the real rescuing. As the interplanetary stakes rise to new heights, Gary is left to save his brother, his planet, his beloved wife Kira (Sarah Jessica Parker) and their adventure hungry son Kip!

It’ll be in theatres sometime in 2012.
