Samuel L. Jackson and Paul Giamatti join Ryan Reynolds for Dreamworks Animation's Turbo

02.23.2012

Samuel L. Jackson and Paul Giamatti aren't the only ones joining Dreamworks next animated feature TURBO.

In addition to Jackson and Giamatti, Michael Pena, Luis Guzmán, Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Kurtwood Smith, and Snoop Dogg are also joining the already attached Ryan Reynolds for the feature.

So what's this thing even about? Well, the above photo might be a little help to you, but here's a synopsis since it isn't entirely clear:

"An ordinary garden snail (Reynolds) with dreams of racing greatness. His obsession with speed and all things fast has made him an oddity and outsider in the slow and cautious snail community, and a constant embarrassment to his careful older brother. When he is one day imbued with the power of amazing speed, he embarks on a quest that will see him racing in the Indianapolis 500."

David Soren (MERRY MADAGASCAR) is set to direct the film based on his original concept. Robert Siegel (THE WRESTLER) and Darren Lemke (SHREK FOREVER AFTER) partnered up for the script. TURBO is due to release on July 19, 2013.

So he's racing in a car or as a snail? Because both are dumb and make absolutely no sense.

I don't know if I'll go see this, but that's some voice cast they got. Sometimes they go a bit heavy on SNL and Apatowiand influence. Not thrilled about Snoop Dogg, but not entirely turned off by it.

With Robert Siegel writing

One can only assume the movie will end with the snail sacrificing his body for his fans and dying(????) at the end. Also there should be a sexy snail that takes her shell off for money played by Marissa Tomei, as there should be in every movie.
