Susan Sarandon Headed To Hell & Back
She'll be the voice of an angel

Susan Sarandon Headed To Hell & Back

Because animated comedy Hell & Back didn’t already boast a bulging cast list, directors Tom Gianas and Ross Shuman have added yet another name to the roster. Susan Sarandon has climbed aboard, and she’ll be voicing an angel named Barb.

Hell & Back finds best mates Remy (Nick Swardson) and Augie (TJ Miller) journeying into the Inferno to rescue a mate who has accidentally been dragged down there.

The voice cast includes (very deep breath) Mila Kunis, who signed on in March, Jennifer Coolidge, Rob Riggle, Danny McBride, Bob Odenkirk, Kerri Kenney, Michael Pena, David Koechner, JB Smoove, Brian Posehn, Greg Proops, Seth Morris and Jay Johnston, among others. Suffice to say, it’ll be distinctly R-rated, no-holds-barred comedy.

With a script by Robot Chicken veterans Zeb Wells and Hugh Sterbakov, it’s going through the stop-motions right now and is set for release… Well, it hasn’t locked that particular detail in just yet, but we’ll certainly be eagerly waiting to hear when it does.

Sarandon, meanwhile, last appeared in Jeff, Who Lives At Home and will next be seen in Adam Sandler’s latest, That’s My Boy, as well as quirky indie drama Robot And Frank with Frank Langella. And because she’s been busy recently, she’ll follow those with a variety of movies including financial drama Arbitrage, family pic The Big Wedding and the Wachowskis’ ambitious Cloud Atlas.
