HOLLYWOOD — Bubbly talkshow host Kelly Ripa is about to become even more animated, joining the cast of indie feature toon “Delgo” from Fathom Studios.
Ripa is providing the voice of the handmaiden and best friend of the film’s female protag, Princess Kyla. The 3-D CGI film follows the fantasy adventures of Kyla and Bogardus, youths from different races on a planet facing extinction.
Others already signed to voice the project, which still has about a year’s worth of work before completion, include Jennifer Love Hewitt, Louis Gossett Jr., Val Kilmer, Michael Clarke Duncan, Chris Kattan, Eric Idle, Sally Kellerman and Burt Reynolds.
Atlanta-based Fathom has mostly created advertising and similar animated work in the past. Longtime backers of Fathom’s founders are financing film. Company is seeking distribution for pic.
