Jamie Foxx is entering the world of animation with his forthcoming project, Welcome to the Jungle.
Variety reports that the singer-actor-comedian will be releasing the feature-length cartoon through 20th Century Fox.
Jamie, who pitched the idea for Welcome to the Jungle to Fox, will produce and provide lead vocals for the film. He’ll also pen a few original tunes for it.
The script is being written by Malcolm Spellman. While he and Jamie are keeping plot details very hush-hush, Malcolm did offer up a little clue: “Life’s a jungle and welcome to it.”
At press time there was no word on who else might join the cast, or when the movie will go into production. Our guess is that it will either be a summer movie or a holiday release.
