ScreenDaily is reporting that Emily Watson (Everest, War Horse) and Harry Potter‘s Jason Isaacs have joined the voice cast for Holger Tappe’s 3D animation Happy Family.
Based on David Safier’s best-selling novel, with a script by Catharina Junk and Safier, “Happy Family is a family adventure that follows the very much unhappy Wishbone clan – under pressure and constantly at each other’s throats.
When they are cursed by an evil witch and transformed into their own monstrous party costumes, they must pull together to battle real-life beasts; reverse the curse; and prove that even a vampire, a mummy, a werewolf, and Frankenstein’s monster can eventually form one big happy family.”
The cast also includes Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead), Jessica Brown Findlay (“Downton Abbey”), Celia Imrie (“The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”) and Catherine Tate (“Doctor Who”).
Production and sales outfit Timeless Films is handling worldwide sales on the project and will be presenting new footage from the film at the American Film Market next week.
