Actor Matthew Modine has joined the voice cast of Bill Plympton’s new animated feature Revengeance, currently raising funds on Kickstarter.
Best known as Private Joker in Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket, Modine is a long-time supporter of independent animation. He has lent his voice talents to Mia and the Migoo, Wrinkles, the Academy Award-nominated A Cat in Paris, and Ralph Bakshi’s upcoming Last Days of Coney Island.
He previously voiced two short films (Santa, The Fascist Years and The Flying House) by Plympton and executive produced Plympton’s award-winning feature, Cheatin’, now available on Vimeo on Demand.
Revengeance is directed, animated and produced by Bill Plympton; written, designed, voiced and scored by Jim Lujan; and executive produced by Adam Rackoff and Modine.
The voice cast includes Dave Foley (TV’s The Odd Couple), Kristina Wong, Lalo Alcaraz, Ken Mora, and Jim Lujan.
With 21 days left to go, Plympton’s Kickstarter campaign has already raised more than $31,000 from more than 300 backers.
