Natalie Portman Boards Animated Movie ‘Foxy Trotter’ From Bold Films (EXCLUSIVE)

Bold Films will produce and finance its first animated film, “Foxy Trotter,” with Natalie Portman producing and voicing a role.

Chris Prynoski is directing from a script by Jess Rotter, Michael Reich, Jessica Hundley and Mike Pinkney. In addition to Portman, the producers are Bold Films’ Michel Litvak and Gary Michael Walters, Chris and Shannon Prynoski and Ben Kalina of animation shingle Titmouse, Reich and Rotter, who is also the art director. The executive producers are Lisa Zambri and Jessica Hundley

“Foxy Trotter” is a motorcycle-riding, rock and roll photographer in the early ’70s on a mission to capture the perfect rock photo. Portman will voice Foxy’s best friend, Ronnie, who is seduced by her archrival Gunter and offered as a sacrifice in Gunter’s evil plan to destroy the universe.

“We are thrilled to launch this inventive, sexy, psychedelic, hilarious, female-oriented animated film with such a glowingly talented star and producer like Natalie Portman,” Litvak said.

“‘Foxy Trotter’ is a wild mix of ‘Barbarella’ meets ‘Sausage Party’ meets ‘Easy Rider,'” Pryonski added.

Bold Films produced and financed “Shot Caller,” “Drive,” and “Whiplash.” The company made the announcement Nov. 2 at the American Film Market. Wild Bunch will handle sales at AFM.
