Cast set for ‘Monsters vs. Aliens’

Witherspoon, Rogen lend voices to 3-D film

Reese Witherspoon, Hugh Laurie, Will Arnett, Seth Rogen, Rainn Wilson, Stephen Colbert, Kiefer Sutherland and Paul Rudd have signed on to lend their voices to DreamWorks Animation’s “Monsters vs. Aliens.”

Paramount Pictures will distribute the pic, DWA’s first film produced in Ultimate 3-D technology.

Story, which reinvents the classic ‘50s monster movie as a modern-day action comedy, centers on California girl Susan Murphy (Witherspoon), who is unexpectedly clobbered by a meteor full of outer space gunk and mysteriously grows to 50 feet tall.

She is captured and held in a secret government compound. The world learns that the military has been quietly rounding up other monsters over the years, including the brilliant but insect-headed Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D. (Laurie), the gelatinous and indestructible B.O.B. (Rogen) and macho half-ape, half-fish the Missing Link (Arnett).

Wilson plays Gallaxhar, Colbert is the president of the U.S., Sutherland portrays General W.R. Monger and Rudd is Susan’s boyfriend, Derek.

Rob Letterman (“Shark Tale”) and Conrad Vernon (“Shrek 2”) will helm.

Lisa Stewart is producing, and Jill Hopper and Latifa Ouaou co-produce.

Monsters vs. Aliens” is scheduled to bow March 27, 2009.
