Geek Casting: Kristen Bell - Disney's FROZEN and Zoe Saldana - OUT OF THE FURNACE
Here's a couple little casting tidbits for you!
Kristen Bell will be voicing the lead role in a new Disny animated film called Frozen. The film is a 3D CG animated adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson’s story The Snow Queen, and will include some original songs, some of which Bell will sing herself.
The original story follows Gerda and Kay who are the best of friends. "They live across an alley from each other and happily chat, play, and tend their lovely rose garden. The children are happy until tragedy strikes Kay. His eye and heart are pierced with fragments of a mirror, and the loving boy Gerda knew vanishes. The Snow Queen has put him under her spell and taken him to her palace of snow and ice. It is up to Gerda to find him and bring him home to the love that awaits him." The movie is scheduled for November 27th, 2013.
Then there's Zoe Saldana, who's been cast alongside Christian Bale in Relativity Media's Out of the Furnace. The movie is a revenge thriller that follows an ex-con who, once released from prison, is given no choice but to avenge the death of his brother. It's described as being a gritty throwback to films of the 1970s. It will be directed by Scott Cooper, who previously directed Crazy Heart.
