Hathaway, Harris, Santoro Go To “Rio”

Anne Hathaway, Neil Patrick Harris and Rodrigo Santoro have joined the voice cast of “Rio” for Blue Sky Studios and Fox Animation says The Hollywood Reporter.

The 3-D digital animated feature centers on a nerdy macaw who leaves the comforts of his cage in small-town Minnesota and heads to Rio de Janeiro.

Carlos Saldanha (“Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs”) is directing the project which Chris Jenkins and Bruce Anderson are producing. The film opens April 2011.
