DJ Khaled, Rashida Jones, Ben Mendelsohn, Karen Gillan, Masi Oka Join Fox Animations’ ‘Spies in Disguise’

Actors join cast featuring Will Smith and Tom Holland

Fox Animation has landed Ben Mendelsohn, Karen Gillan, Rashida Jones, Masi Oka and DJ Khaled as voices in its upcoming 2019 animated feature “Spies in Disguise.”

The actors join Will Smith and Tom Holland in the animated film about two spies, Lance and Walter. One is a super cool and charming spy, and the other invents the super cool gadgets Lance uses. When an event happens, they must learn to rely on each other like never before in order to save the world. It is based on Lucas Martell’s 2009 animated short “Pigeon: Impossible.”

The film is expected to have a ’60s spy flick feel and look but it will take place in a modern context. It will take place in a stylized version of Washington D.C.

Nick Bruno, an animator who has worked on films such as “Epic” and 2015’s “The Peanuts Movie” is directing the film along with “Ferdinand” storyboard artist Troy Quane.

“Spies in Disguise” is being produced with Blue Sky Studios and Chernin Entertainment. The film is set for a September 2019 release date.

Michael J. Travers (“The Peanuts Movie”) is producing. Theodore Shapiro (“Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie”) has been tapped to score.
