Giamatti And Keitel Board Thinking Man’s Animated Movie

Tuesday, February 15 by

Reps for Harvey Keitel, Danny Huston, and Paul Giamatti have confirmed that the actors will appear as delicately drawn characters in Ari Folman’s follow up to Waltz With Bashir.

The Congress is a feature that mixes live-action with animation and follows Robin Wright as an aging actress who sells her likeness to a movie studio in order to care for her disabled child. As a result, her image can be used any way the studio pleases and it begins to have a detrimental effect on her life that she never anticipated.

It’s good to see an animated project that isn’t kid-skewed. Fingers crossed that audiences react well to this. Otherwise Keitel, Huston, and Giamatti will end up voicing pigeons in a DreamWorks cartoon about a cockroach who dreams of a career on Broadway. (The Playlist)
