We have some exciting casting news to share with you today, with all sorts of big names joining big projects, including the upcoming Teen Titans Go! movie, a new animated film starring Will Smith and Tom Holland, Fox’s Lucifer, and MTV’s rebooted third season of Scream.
First off, Warner Bros. announced today that Will Arnett (The LEGO Batman Movie) and Kristen Bell (Heroes, Frozen) have joined the voice cast of directors Aaron Horvath and Peter Rida Michail’s DC animated film Teen Titans GO! to the Movies.
The big screen movie penned by Michael Jelenic (Teen Titans Go!, Batman vs. Two Face) and Horvath is based on the hilarious Cartoon Network TV show and stars series regulars Greg Cipes (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) as Beast Boy, Scott Menville (Spider-Man) as Robin, Khary Payton (The Walking Dead) as Cyborg, Tara Strong (My Little Pony) as Raven, and Hynden Walch (Adventure Time with Finn & Jake) as Starfire. No word yet on who Arnett and Bell will play.
Teen Titans GO! to the Movies is slated for a July 27, 2018 release.
Next up, according to Variety, Will Smith and Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland have come on board a new animated feature from Fox titled Spies in Disguise. The movie is based on the 2009 animated short film by Lucas Martell, Pigeon: Impossible, which followed a rookie secret agent entrusted with a “government-issued nuclear briefcase” who almost sets off a nuclear war when a pigeon gets trapped in the briefcase.
The movie co-directed by Nick Bruno (Epic, The Peanuts Movie) and Troy Quane (Ice Age: Collision Course, Ferdinand) will be a Fox Animation production, with Blue Sky Studios and Chernin Entertainment supervising the project to hit theaters on Jan. 18, 2019.
TV Line reports that Fox’s hit series Lucifer has added The Leftovers’ Kevin Carroll in the role of the Season 3 villain, the Sinnerman. The character is a mysterious criminal with ties to Tom Welling’s (Smallville) Marcus Pierce, who may be behind the return of Lucifer’s (Tom Ellis) wings. The character will make his first appearance in Episode 6.
Last, but not least, and this one is more maybe than definite casting news since the original Spoiler TV (via Bloody-Disgusting) post has seemingly vanished, but it looks like Season 3 of MTV’s horror series Scream may also include another former Teen Wolf cast member in Gideon Emery (Krampus, Daredevil).
So there you have it. What do you think of all this glorious casting news?
