Atlanta-based Fathom Studios’ independent CG feature Delgo is looking more and more like a big-budget Hollywood production as more and more stars come aboard. Today brings news that actress/singer Jennifer Love Hewitt (The Tuxedo, I Know What You Did Last Summer) and Saturday Night Live alum Chris Kattan have joined Val Kilmer, Michael Clarke Duncan, Eric Idle and Lou Gossett Jr. in the voice cast for the animated adventure.
Love Hewitt will lend her voice to Princess Kyla, a spunky and beguiling princess with a big heart and an even bigger attitude. Kattan, who just ended his seven-year SNL run on Saturday night, will play Filo, a fast-talking, wise-cracking smart-aleck.
Delgo blends fantasy, action, humor and romance to tell the story of a troubled youth who confronts the perils of a divided land and gathers a team of unlikely friends to help him save the world from itself.
While casting for the role of hero Delgo has not been announced, Fathom says the part has already been recorded and an announcement will be made this summer.
Work-in-progress shots and images from Delgo can be seen on Digital Dailies, a message board on the movie’s web site (www.delgo.com).
