Will Arnett, Katherine Heigl and Brendan Fraser have all signed on to lend their voices to characters of the upcoming animated film "The Nut Job." The feature will be based on Peter Lepeniotis' 2005 short "Surly Squirrel."
Producers describe the film as "an action-packed comedy set in the late 1950s in fictional Oakton [that] follows the travails of the mischievous squirrel Surly and his rat pal Buddy as they plan a nut store heist that gets out of hand."
Producer Thom Chapman of studio ToonBox adds:
"We couldn't be more pleased with the cast that's being assembled for our first feature. They have brought the film to a whole new level. Each voice is perfect for their respective roles, and they truly make the characters come alive."
