Seth Green will star in Walt Disney Pictures and ImageMovers’ performance-capture feature “Mars Needs Moms!” says The Hollywood Reporter.
An adaptation of the Berkeley Breathed children’s novel, the story follows a boy named Milo (Green) who stows away aboard a spaceship to rescue his mom (Joan Cusack) after she was kidnapped by aliens.
Mindy Sterling (“Austin Powers”) will play the alien leader of Mars, inspiring terror in all who meet her. Dan Fogler (Fanboys) is playing Gribble, a friend of Milo. Elisabeth Harnois has also joined the cast.
Simon and Wendy Wells adapted the screenplay with the former directing. Robert Zemeckis, Jack Rapke and Steve Starkey are producing.
