On the heels of the news that Ashley Jensen will lend her voice to Scottish Terrier Jackie, we’ve got even more Lady and the Tramp casting news. Justin Theroux is in talks to lend his voice to the character of Tramp in the upcoming Disney live-action/CG remake of the animated classic.
Directed by Charlie Bean, this remake of the 1955 classic tells the tale of streetwise mongrel Tramp who rescues and then falls in love with the luxery-loving Cocker Spaniel, Lady who is on the streets after her owners had a baby.
The remake is set to premier on Disney’s upcoming streaming service. The service launches in 2019 and we expect to see this film debut shortly after.
The scrip for this film was penned by Andrew Bujalski with Jessica Virtue and Chaz Salembier overseeing for Disney.
Theroux is well known for his role in the critically acclaimed HBO drama The Leftovers, which wrapped after three season. His newest movie, The Spy Who Dumped Me, opens in theaters on August 3rd. In December we can see him in both Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s biopic, On the Basis of Sex and the Transformers spinoff, Bumblebee.
All of this casting news regarding the live-action/CG Disney remake of Lady and the Tramp has me even more excited than I was before! I cannot wait see how the classic spaghetti eating scene is done “live” and I’m so excited to share this classic Disney film with my kiddos!
Are you looking forward to this movie? What do you think of the latests casting news?
