Singer-songwriter Becky G and Josh Peck have come on board as the lead voice talents for 3QU Media’s animated comedy “Gnome Alone.”

Directed by Peter Lepeniotis (“The Nut Job”) and produced by 3QU co-founder John H. Williams (“Shrek”), “Gnome Alone” is being animated at Cinesite and is slated for completion in the spring of 2017.

Becky G will also sing in “Gnome Alone” as part of the role of a high schooler named Chloe. She was cast in October as the Yellow Ranger for Lionsgate’s upcoming “Power Rangers” movie and has a recurring role on the Fox series “Empire” as the fiery Valentina.

“Gnome Alone” is the second of four feature-length animated films to be produced and financed by 3QU Media following “Charming,” currently in production with a voice cast including Demi Lovato, Wilmer Valderrama, Sia, GEM, Ashley Tisdale, Steve Aoki and John Cleese. The “Gnome Alone” announcement was made by 3QU Media principals Williams and Henry Skelsey.

Variety reported in 2014 that Williams and Henry Skelsky had launched the company to create family friendly CG-animated films for global audiences with plans for four films, each with budgets under $20 million.

“Gnome Alone” is written by Kyle Newman and Micah Herman with revisions by Rob Moreland and Zina Zaflow. It centers on a centuries-old war waged between the grizzled Gnomes who protect earth and the wacky and hungry Troggs determined to consume everything in sight. When the reluctant protagonist Chloe discovers that her new home’s garden gnomes are not what they seem, she must decide between the pursuit of a desired high school life and taking up the fight against the Troggs.

“‘Gnome Alone’ is an energetic action comedy for kids in the tradition of films like ‘Monster Squad,’ ‘Gremlins’ and ‘Ghostbusters’ with chills and fun scares and plenty of hilarious characters that’ll thrill the child in all of us,” added Lepeniotis.

Becky G provided the song “Monster” for the Sony Pictures animated film “Hotel Transylvania.”

Peck starred as John Stamos’ son in the recently canceled Fox series “Grandfathered.” He co-starred with Al Pacino, Annette Bening and Jennifer Garner in Dan Fogelman’s 2015 film “Danny Collins” and starred in the Amazon pilot “The Rebels” opposite Natalie Zea.

Williams has a producing credit on “Shrek 2” and exec producer credits on the third and fourth “Shrek” movies. He also produced “Space Chimps,” “Valiant” and “Happily N’ever After” through his Vanguard Films.
