Jamie Foxx has signed on to voice the lead character in the new animated family movie, Groove Tails.
Groove Tails is set in the world of competitive street dancing, but for mice. Set in a realm where cheese is currency and dance is king, the film follows Biggz as he tries to regain his confidence as a dancer, pay off his debt to a club, clear the streets of menacing alley cats and win the love of the girl-mouse of his dreams.
Jamie will also produce the movie with Michael Becker of Imprint Entertainment and AMBI principals Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi. The script is written by Johnny Mack, who will also serve as an executive producer. Award-winning writer, director and animator Cameron Hood is directing the project.
“As one of the most multidimensional and accomplished entertainers of our generation, everything about Jamie, including his voice, is immediately recognizable to audiences worldwide. There is no actor better suited to lead this movie than Jamie and we’re thrilled to be partnered with him and Michael Becker on this project. We are all vested in bringing something very special to the big screen together.” – said Andrea Iervolino
“Jamie’s unparalleled talents are at the forefront of this heartwarming, family-friendly comedy. His animated nature lends itself perfectly to Biggz’s character and his acumen as a producer is as finely tuned as any in the business. We’re excited to move forward with this fun tale.” – added Monika Bacardi
