Brendan Fraser, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jessica Alba, Rob Corddry, James Gandolfini and Craig Robinson have been tapped for the voice cast for animated 3D family comedy ”Escape From Planet Earth.”

The announcement was made Tuesday by Donna Gigliotti, TWC’s president of production, and Catherine Winder, president of Rainmaker Entertainment. Both Gigliotti and Winder are producers on the film.

Cal Brunker is directing and Rainmaker’s Luke Carroll is also a producer with TWC Co-Chairmen Bob and Harvey Weinstein exec producing. The film was written by Brunker and Bob Barlen based on a screenplay by Tony Leech and Cory Edwards.

Story’s set on the planet Baab where admired astronaut Scorch Supernova (voiced by Fraser) is a national hero to the blue alien population. When he’s informed of an SOS from a notoriously dangerous planet, he rejects his brother’s warnings and bounds off for yet another exciting mission — only to find himself caught in a fiendish trap.

A film will be released in the U.S. in 2012.
