An upcoming animated film has added some big name stars to its cast. Zoe Saldana and Diego Luna are slated to star (at least, their voices will) in The Book of Life. Channing Tatum and Christina Applegate will also reportedly star in the film.
The film will be produced by Guillermo del Toro and directed by Jorge Gutierrez. Book of Life will be a first major animated movie for both Saldana and Luna.
The story will follow the journey of young Manolo, who is caught in a classic conflict between the wishes of his family and his heart’s desires. Before the character decides which path to take, he embarks on an adventure through three fantasy worlds, where he confronts his greatest fears.
The movie is expected to hit theaters in October 2014.
