Thesp to narrate docu for Warner Bros., Imax
Morgan Freeman will narrate animal documentary “Born to Be Wild 3D” for Warner Bros. and Imax.“Wild,” which will launch in Imax theaters on April 8, centers on orphaned baby orangutans and elephants receiving a second chance at life in the wild, thanks to primatologist Dr. Birute Galdikas in Borneo and elephant authority Dame Daphne Sheldrick. “I feel immensely privileged as a filmmaker that someone of Morgan’s stature is involved in this project,” said writer-producer Drew Fellman. “His extraordinary voice will profoundly elevate this touching tale of the bond between humans and animals.” The film’s trailer made its online debut Thursday on Apple.com and on Friday in Imax theaters with the bow of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 1.” “Wild” is directed by David Lickley with cinematography by David Douglas.
