Eddie Redmayne Joins Aardman’s “Early Man”

Eddie Redmayne has joined the cast of the Nick Park-directed, prehistoric-set Aardman Animation feature “Early Man” at StudioCanal.

The story is set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the Earth. Redmayne will voice the central caveman character called Dug who, along with sidekick Hognob, unites his tribe against the mighty Bronze Age in a battle to beat them at their own game.

Redmayne, soon to be seen in the “Harry Potter” spin-off “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” is the first voice cast member to be be revealed.
