Parsons, Rihanna Celebrate DWA’s “Smekday”

Jim Parsons and Rihanna will play the lead voices in DreamWorks Animation’s “Happy Smekday!” which Tim Johnson (“Antz”) is directing for a Q4 2014 release says Heat Vision.

Tom J. Astle and Matt Ember are penning this adaptation of Adam Rex’s award-winning book “The True Meaning of Smekday” which deals with a friendly alien race invading Earth and using it as a hideout from their mortal enemy.

When one lowly alien accidentally notifies the enemies of his whereabouts, he is forced to go on the run with a teenage girl, embarking on a comical road trip across a postapocalyptic America.

Chris Jenkins (“Rio”) and Suzanne Buirgy (“Kung Fu Panda 2”) are producing.
