“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.
