Me and My Shadow

Kate Hud­son will make her ani­ma­tion debut as a mem­ber of the voice cast of Dream­Works Ani­ma­tion fan­tasy fea­ture film Me and My Shadow.

Also signed are The Book of Mor­mon star Josh Gad and Sat­ur­day Night Live’s Bill Hader. The stu­dio has sched­uled a Novem­ber 13, 2013 release date.

Alessan­dro Car­loni will make his direc­to­r­ial debut with the movie, which is being pro­duced by Melissa Cobb (Kung Fu Panda 2). Car­loni was head of story on DWA’s Oscar-nominated How To Train Your Dragon (2010).

In the movie, Hader por­trays Stan, an extremely frus­trated shadow who yearns for a dynamic life, but hap­pens to be stuck with timid Stan­ley Grubb (Gad), the world’s most bor­ing human. Finally pushed to the brink, Shadow Stan breaks the sin­gu­lar rule of the Shadow World — “They lead, we fol­low” — and takes con­trol of Stanley!

Hud­son will voice Grubb’s pos­si­ble love inter­est in the real world.

Con­ceived in-house as an orig­i­nal film, the movie will com­bine CG and tra­di­tional ani­ma­tion (the shadow world is hand-drawn; the human world is CG).

Tom J. Astle and Matt Ember are writ­ing the story based on an orig­i­nal draft from Steve Ben­cich and Ron J. Fried­man. Jeff Her­mann (Kung Fu Panda 2) is the co-producer.

Mark Din­dal (2000’s The Emperor’s New Groove) was pre­vi­ously set as the director.

Gad is doing voice work in Ice Age: Con­ti­nen­tal Drift, set for release July 12. Hader has been a voice actor in the 2009 ani­mated fea­ture films Cloudy With A Chance Of Meat­ballsand Ice Age: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs.
