Drew Barrymore has been cast as the lead voice in “South of the Border,” a Walt Disney Pictures comedy being directed by Raja Gosnell says The Hollywood Reporter.
“South” chronicles the adventures of a pampered Beverly Hills chihuahua named Chloe (Barrymore) accustomed to riding in a purse. While on vacation in Mexico, she gets lost and must rely on her friends to help her get back home.
Also lending their voices to the live-action movie in which the animals talk are Andy Garcia as a German shepherd who’s a former police dog, Salma Hayek as Chloe’s spirit guide, George Lopez as an overly romantic Chihuahua. Piper Perabo was previously cast as the Chloe’s human owner.
Cheech Marin, Paul Rodriguez, Placido Domingo, Edward James Olmos and Eddie “Piolin” Sotelo also lend their voices.
