Jeremy Renner and Jennifer Lopez to lend their voices to Ice Age 4

04.27.2011

Fox has added some big new names to the upcoming fourth installment in the ICE AGE series, bringing on Jeremy Renner, Jennifer Lopez, Aziz Ansari and Wanda Sykes to voice characters in the film. Subtitled CONTINENTAL DRIFT, the film will bring back Ray Romano, Queen Latifah, Denis Leary, John Leguizamo, Seann William Scott and Josh Peck (no Simon Pegg?).

The film takes place during the continental shift, which we are led to believe takes place because of Scrat's dogged pursuit of an acorn, and our characters are separated by the oceans. Renner will play Gutt, a master of the high seas who helps to reunite the gang. Lopez will play a female sabre-toothed tiger and a love interest for Diego (Denis Leary).

Fox is planning a July 13, 2012 release for ICE AGE 4 and that's not all they have in store for the popular franchise. As has been the rage lately with DreamWorks, Fox is planning an ICE AGE Christmas special to air later this year as well as an app game and an online game based on the property.

The last ICE AGE film, DAWN OF THE DINOSAURS, is one of the highest grossing films worldwide of all-time with a total of $886 million (ahead of THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING, FINDING NEMO and REVENGE OF THE SITH) so it's a certainty we'll be seeing more ICE AGE films through the years.

great franchise

one of the most underrated and CONSISTENT animated franchises out there, if not the MOST.

Had more fun with the last one with the Dinosaurs than I thought, and regret not seeing it on the big screen in 3D! will be seeing this one for sure!

Denis Leary yeah baby!!

EDIT: also I saw an Ice Age short recently at the theatre before a movie and I think it's actually the prequel/basis for this one... huh, cool!

Good For Them

It's an inoffensive franchise that is fun for kids with cute, cuddly characters, reasonably simply story lines and is a cash cow. I for one loved the original Ice Age, but never bothered with the sequels. As long as it makes the kids happy, I say more power to ya, Fox!

Man what is Jeremy Renner not going to be in now and days. After The Dark Knight Rises and Batman reboots my bets is Jeremy Renner will play batman and Shia Labouf will play Robin

Just like Shrek they're going to run this series into the ground...These movies stopped being funny after the first one..but then I hate Ray Romano with a passion.

unlike Shrek, the sequels to Ice Age have actually been good. Once they release a bad one- THEN we can start wondering if they're gonna make more and run it into the ground.

really? I can always tell who it is unless they change their voice on purpose (i.e. Despicable Me, which was still very good)

I for one enjoy and like the Ice Age movies. Not the best animated movies out there, but they are all still entertaining.

Adding Renner is always a positive and I am sure (hoping) that Lopez won't be too annoying in this.
