A big announcement came from Sony Pictures Animation today as they unveiled the star list of voices to appear in Hotel Transylvania, the company's newest computer generated cartoon. Columbia Pictures will release the 3D movie on September 21, 2012.
Adam Sandler has had a long work history with this Hollywood studio and he's once again saddling up with Team Sony/Columbia for Hotel Transylvania. Joining him are several Sandler buddies who have starred in other Happy Madison productions. The premise of the film is that Dracula (voiced by Sandler) is the owner of a five-star hotel for monsters who need some time for R&R. Providing the voice of Frankenstein's Monster (who's called by the more buddy name Frank in the film) is Kevin James, star of the upcoming Zookeeper and the former King of Queens. David Spade voices Quasimodo, the famous hunchback who's now the resort's chef, and Steve Buscemi will play the head of household of a werewolf couple. Playing the Bride of Frankenstein is Fran Drescher (The Nanny), Molly Shannon as the werewolf wife, and singer Cee Lo Green as a mummy named Murray. Finally there's SNL cast member Andy Samburg who plays a straight-up human who happens to find himself vacationing at the monster hotel.
Directing this monstrosity of a movie is Genndy Tartakovsky, the creator of Samurai Jack and director of Star Wars' first Clone Wars cartoon series. Producing is Michelle Murdocca who brings with her experience making feature length CG films like Open Season and the live-action/CG Stuart Little features.
With that kind of star power, naturally the studio is seeing
as a family friendly comedy picture. The president of Sony Pictures Animation, Michelle Raimo-Kouyate, sees her new movie as a "unique story" that presents a "comedy Dracula for a new generation."- Sony Pictures. Comment on this Scoop (0)
