Voice cast confirmed for animated feature…

Universal Pictures and ‘Despicable Me’ creators Illumination Entertainment have announced that Louis C.K., Kevin Hart, and ‘Modern Family’ star Eric Stonestreet are set to lend their voices to the 3D comedy adventure ‘The Untitled Pets Project.’

The film, Illumination’s fifth animated feature, follows Max, a quick-witted terrier rescue (Louis C.K.) whose position at the epicentre of his master’s universe is suddenly threatened when she comes home with a sloppy mongrel with no polish named Duke (voiced by Stonestreet).

Max and Duke soon find themselves on the mean streets of New York, where they meet the adorable white bunny Snowball (Hart). It turns out that Snowball is the leader of an army of pets that were abandoned and are determined to get back at humanity and every owner-loving pet. The dogs must thwart this plot and make it back in time for dinner.

Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his long-time collaborator Janet Healy will produce the project, with Chris Renaud (‘Despicable Me’) and Yarrow Cheney co-directing from a script by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio.
