Arterton, Fry cook up Kitchen roles

Gemma Arterton will provide her voice talents for a new animated film

Gemma Arterton, Nicholas Hoult and Stephen Fry are set to voice characters in animated adventure Once Upon A Time In The Kitchen.

The British trio will lend their voices to the family film, which will be directed by Alexander Williams, reported Screen Daily.

The story, which has been written by Friends writer Chris Brown, focuses on the rivalry between everyday utensils and the posh silver and cutlery and like Toy Story, takes place when humans are away.

The director described Once Upon A Time In The Kitchen as "a fantasy adventure aimed squarely at a family audience, but with enough sophisticated wit to keep the grown-ups happy.

"To me the best animated films invite the audience in to a world that they have never seen before - and could not possibly see outside of the medium of animation. We want to bring a familiar world to life in a completely unfamiliar way - what really happens in the kitchen after dark, when the humans leave?" he added.

Producer Spencer Pollard, CEO of Kaleidoscope (KFD) said: "The film has all the right ingredients to be a potential global theatrical family smash with excellent animation, a very fun script and A-list voice talent both for the UK and international market."

No release date for the film has been announced yet.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Libra:

Sorting out and organising your surroundings should be your first priority. As a general rule, you don't mind an untidy workspace. As far as you're concerned, messiness is a sign of genius. There comes a point when even the most talented person has to make order from chaos. It may take a few hours to sort through all the papers that have accumulated, but take heart. Once you dispose the junk, you'll be able to zip through chores like a hot knife through butter.More
