Jeremy Renner has signed on to voice the lead character in 3D animated family film “Arctic Justice: Thunder Squad” from AMBI Group.
Renner joins previously announced Alec Baldwin, James Franco, Anjelica Huston and Omar Sy in a rag-tag group of inexperienced heroes combining to thwart the evil Doc Walrus, voiced by John Cleese, and save the Arctic. Renner will be voicing a fox named Swifty.
The movie is fully financed and produced by AMBI principals Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi, with animation work being done out of their AIC Toronto studio by Dimos Vrysellas (“Shark Tale”).
Cal Brunker and Bob Barlen (“Escape From Planet Earth”) co-wrote the screenplay. AMBI Distribution, the AMBI Group’s sales arm, will oversee worldwide distribution for “Arctic Justice: Thunder Squad.”
AMBI Distribution has already closed a deal with Disney for German Speaking Europe. AMBI is selling markets for “Arctic Justice” at the upcoming Toronto Film Festival.
