Aardman confirms new project, Eddie Redmayne lending voice

Eddie Redmayne is to provide the lead voice in Nick Park and Aardman's next movie, Early Man...

Whenever we have a rare moment where we despair of things, we like to remind ourselves that the wonderful Aardman exists. A company that time and time again has shown the value of storytelling, character and exemplary animation, the announcement of a new Aardman movie is surely cause for a national holiday.

Which is clearly our attempt to get the day off.

That notwithstanding, Aardman has revealed its new film, and it's called Early Man. What's more, for the first time since Wallace & Gromit: The Curse Of The Were-Rabbit, Nick Park is directing. Mark Burton, co-director of the excellent Shaun The Sheep: The Movie, is working on the script.

Early Man is a movie set at the dawn of time, when woolly mammoths and prehistoric creatures were still around. »

Eddie to be Heard, Not Seen

9 May 2016 5:38 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Perhaps sensing that everyone will be sick of looking at him by the tail end of 2017 (what with the multiple Oscar nominated transformations, the actual Oscar, and that new Fantastic Beasts franchise), Eddie Redmayne will give his ginger mug a wee break from gigantification on the big screen. Instead he'll be leading the voice cast of Aardman's Early Man which just went into production for release in 2018. The best part of the news is that Nick Park will be directing and he's been absent from that particular chair for too long. (His last feature was 11 long years ago, the Oscar winning Curse of the Were Rabbit.)

You can pencil it in for a Best Animated Feature nomination right now (albeit two years from now) because Aardman has quite a track record of delights (sorry Flushed Away!). They've got a heavy shelf of awards to prove it including Oscar nominations for »

9 May 2016 5:29 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It has been confirmed that Oscar-winning actor Eddie Redmayne is to lend his voice to the next big Aardoman movie, Early Man.

We received the news of Redmayne’s casting via a press release from StudioCanal, who will distribute the film in the UK, earlier today.

Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth, Early Man tells the story of how plucky caveman Dug, along with sidekick Hognob (also pictured above) unites his tribe against the mighty Bronze Age in a battle to beat them at their own game. It also marks Nick Park’s first feature film since Academy Award winning Wallace and Gromit: The Curse Of The Were-Rabbit. Supported by accomplished screenwriter Mark Burton this new film unleashes an unforgettable cast of hilarious new characters.

The new prehistoric comedy adventure will arrive in UK cinemas from January 26th, 2018.
