Samuel L. Jackson and Paul Giamatti Join TURBO

Ryan Reynolds is going to get some company in DreamWorks Animation's Turbo. THR reports Paul Giamatti and Samuel L. Jackson have joined Michael Pena, Luis Guzmán, Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Kurtwood Smith, and Snoop Dogg in lending their voices to the original feature which is slated for release on July 19, 2013.

Veteran story artist David Soren (Merry Madagascar, a TV Christmas special) will be making his feature directing debut. Soren is also set to co-write the script with Robert Siegel (The Wrestler) and Darren Lemke (Shrek Forever After). The film is being produced by Lisa Stewart and Susan Rogers.

Turbo follows "an ordinary garden snail (Reynolds) with dreams of racing greatness. His obsession with speed and all things fast has made him an oddity and outsider in the slow and cautious snail community, and a constant embarrassment to his careful older brother. When he is one day imbued with the power of amazing speed, he embarks on a quest that will see him racing in the Indianapolis 500."

The cast and story souond good for this film. I loved How To Train Your Dragon, so I am hopeful that Turbo will be cool. Jackson and Giamatti both have great voices, so they are a great addition to the cast. What is your favorite film that they have starred in?
