Thesps bite on food toon

Sheen, Longoria, Brady hungry for 'Foodfight!'

Charlie Sheen, Eva Longoria, Wayne Brady, Chris Kattan and Christopher Lloyd will voice “Foodfight!,” the 3-D toon comedy developed by Threshold Animation Studios and Lions Gate Family Entertainment.

Project, aimed for a fall 2006 release as the first film from LGFE, takes place in a supermarket that comes to life after hours. The creators have acquired the rights to include nearly every consumer packaged goods company’s characters such as Mr. Clean, Charlie the Tuna and Twinkie the Kid.

Sheen will voice the lead role of Dex Dogtective while Longoria will voice Lady X, Brady is Daredevil Dan, Lloyd’s Mr. Clipboard and Kattan’s Polar Penguin.

Lions Gate Family Entertainment agreed earlier this year to co-finance “Foodfight!” with Larry Kasanoff’s Threshold Animation Studios.

Kasanoff directs from a screenplay by Brent Friedman, Rebecca Swanson and Sean Derek, based on a story by Kasanoff and Joshua Wexler. Kasanoff and George Johnsen are producing.

Exec producers are Lions Gate Films Releasing president Tom Ortenberg and Wexler, with Gregory Cascante and Daniel Suh serving as co-exec producers.
