Hudson, Hader, Gad Join “Shadow”

Kate Hudson, Bill Hader (“Superbad”) and Josh Gad (“Love and Other Drugs”) have all signed on to star as the voice cast of the animated fantasy tale “Me & My Shadow” for DreamWorks Animation says Heat Vision.

The story centers on a shadow named Stan (Hader) who yearns for a more exciting life than being attached to a timid human named Stanley Grubb (Gad).

When a crime in the shadow community puts both of their lives in danger, Stan is forced to take control of Stanley, thrusting both of them into an adventure.

The villain intends to lead a rebellion to take over the human world. Hudson will voice Grubb’s potential real world love interest.

The film will blend animation styles with the shadow world being hand-drawn while the human world will be CG. Tom J. Astle and Matt Ember are penning the screenplay.

Alessandro Carloni, the head of story on “How to Train Your Dragon”, makes his directorial debut on the project which Melissa Cobb will produce and which is currently scheduled for a November 13th 2013 release.
