Looks like Ryan Reynolds is going to have a very busy career this year 2013, as he was chosen to voice once again for an animated feature film. Before the much-awaited pre-historic family animated comedy "The Croods" which will be shown in movie theaters on March 22, 2013, Ryan Reynolds also has a lined-up voicing project also another animated feature film from Dreamworks Animation. "Turbo", a story about a snail who dreams of becoming the greatest racer in the world, is the upcoming project from Reynolds. The movie is set to be shown sometimes in July. Reynolds will voice the lead role character, Theo.
In line with this, Dreamworks Animation releases the first-look photos of the upcoming animated film. Aside from Ryan Reynolds, "Turbo" will also feature the voices of Paul Giamatti, Snoop Dogg, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, and Samuel L. Jackson.
"Turbo" Summary/Synopsis/Plot“Turbo” is a story about a snail named Theo (voiced by Reynolds) who dreams of being the greatest racer in the world making him an oddity in the slow and cautious community he belongs. An impossible dream of an ordinary snail comes true when luck struck him with an incredible speed one fateful day. With his dream suddenly within reach, Theo aka Turbo embarks on a journey after being transported to a rundown strip mall where visitors bet on races featuring snails and meets a ragtag of street-smart snails headed by Whiplash (Samuel L. Jackson), Smoove Move (Snoop Dogg), Burn (Maya Rudolph), and Skidmark (Ben Schwartz).
"Turbo" NewsBased on his own original concept, filmmaker David Soren mentioned in an interview with Susan Wloszczyna of USATODAY.Com that “Turbo” was hatched by combining the fascination of his son with race cars and an ongoing infestation of snails on their suburban lawn. “It came purely out of wanting to do an underdog story and combining elements in my life, taking one of the slowest creatures on earth and having him dream of mind-melting speed.”
"Ryan Reynolds' infectious enthusiasm and humor will bring life to the lead role of Turbo and set the tone for this amazing roster of all-star voice talent," said DreamWorks Animation Chief Creative Officer Bill Damaschke. "This high-octane journey will take audiences on the race of their lives and completely re-define the traditional notion of moving at a snail's pace!"
"Turbo" is set to be shown on July 19, 2013. I'm sure this waiting will be all the worth!
