McAdams, Franco for Little Prince

Rachel McAdams will reportedly provide her vocal talents for The Little Prince

Rachel McAdams and James Franco are reportedly on board to voice characters in The Little Prince movie.

The duo are among the star-studded cast who has signed on to lend their vocal talents to the animated film adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupery's classic children's book, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog.

Oscar winners Jeff Bridges, Marion Cotillard and Benicio del Toro are also rumoured to take on voice roles in the upcoming film, with parts for Paul Giamatti and Twilight actress Mackenzie Foy.

Jeff is set to voice the lead character of a pilot who crash lands in the Sahara Desert and meets a young boy claiming to be a prince from outer space.

Mark Osborne, who previously directed Kung Fu Panda, is on board to direct The Little Prince, which could be distributed through Paramount Pictures.

The book, which was published Le Petit Prince in 1943, has become a hit throughout the years and has been translated from French into dozens of languages.
