Reese Witherspoon is going to be Ginormica in animated film “Monsters vs. Aliens“.
Reese will be voicing Susan Murphy whose life changes as she becomes a gigantic woman after being hit by a meteor.
On agreeing to lend her voice, Witherspoon said that she was impressed with the animation storyboard stating,
“I got very inspired when the studio showed me storyboards.”
Commenting on her gigantic character, the 5’2″ actress jokingly said,
“Playing a larger-than-life woman has given me my own opportunity to make tall jokes.”
Aside from Witherspoon, other actors joining the film include Hugh Laurie, Seth Rogen, Will Arnett, Kiefer Sutherland and Stephen Colbert.
The five actors are set to give voices to Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D., the jellylike B.O.B., the half-ape, half-fish Missing Link, General W.R. Monger and the president.
“Monsters” is based on the horror comicbook “Rex Havoc“. It will be directed by Rob Letterman and Conrad Vernon.
The animated film is set for March 3, 2009 release.
