Eddie Redmayne Cast in Aardman Studios’ ‘Early Man’

Eddie Redmayne has been cast in Aardman Studios’ upcoming prehistoric comedy adventure “Early Man.”

Directed by Nick Park, the stop-frame pic is co-financed by Studiocanal, representing the second union between Europe’s two premier animation forces: the duo last teamed on 2015’s “Shaun the Sheep.”

Redmayne is the first cast member announced in the toon, which is set at the dawn of time when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth. The Brit thesp will voice the role of plucky caveman Dug who, along with his sidekick Hognob, unites his tribe against the mighty Bronze Age in a battle to beat them at their own game.

It marks Park’s first feature film since Oscar-winning “Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.”

Pic is skidded for an early 2018 release. Studiocanal will distribute the title in the U.K., France, Germany, Australia and New Zealand and is selling worldwide rights for the pic.

The British Film Institute also supports the film.
