Samantha Bee, Martin Short Cast in DDI’s ‘Elliot: The Littlest Reindeer’

From the American Film Market on Thursday, DDI President Jason Moring announced that critically acclaimed comedian and Emmy nominee Samantha Bee (Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, The Daily Show) and award-winning actor Martin Short (Saturday Night Live, Frankenweenie) will be voicing characters in the animated feature film Elliot: The Littlest Reindeer.

Produced by Dan Krech and Lucas Lynette-Krech under their Awesometown Entertainment banner, Elliot: The Littlest Reindeer is based on a multi-award winning screenplay, named the best Canadian screenplay in all categories by Prexis and winner of the Angel Award for Best Children’s Screenplay at the Monaco Int’l Film Festival.

Elliot: The Littlest Reindeer relates what happens when, after Blitzen announces his retirement on December 21st, a miniature horse has three days to fulfill his lifelong dream of earning a spot on Santa’s sleigh team during the North Pole Try-Outs.

“We’ve added two extremely talented comedians, Samantha and Martin, who will surely bring some cheer to this fun-loving holiday movie,” said Moring.

DDI is selling Elliot at AFM (Loews #711), where its lineup also includes animated adventure Spark and live-action projects Triple Word Score, You, Me and Him, Super Troopers 2 and Think Like a Dog.
