Catherine Keener Gets The Croods

She’ll voice the ‘toon with Emma Stone

DreamWorks has nabbed the tonsil talents of Catherine Keener and Emma Stone for its Neanderthal comedy, The Croods.

They’ll star alongside Nic Cage and Ryan Reynolds in the story of a family shoved out of their home by an earthquake.

Grug (Cage) believes they should stick with their traditional ways, but then they meet Gy (Reynolds), a charismatic nomad who introduces them to the concept of “tomorrow” and also romances Eep (Stone). Keener is playing Ugga, Grug’s wife.

How To Train Your Dragon’s Chris Saunders is working on the movie with Kirk DeMicco, who originated the idea alongside John Cleese.

The film will hit our cinemas in 2012.
