Seth Green has signed up to star in Disney Picture “Mars Needs Moms,” an adaptation of the children’s novel by Berkeley Breathed.
Simon Wells is directing the performance-capture movie, which follows a boy named Milo who stows away aboard a spaceship to rescue his mom after she’s kidnapped by aliens. Green will play Milo.
The project, from Disney and filmmaker Robert Zemeckis, reunites Green with his ” Austin Powers ” mom, Mindy Sterling , who will play the alien leader of Mars, inspiring terror in all who meet her. Dan Fogler (Fanboys) is playing Gribble, a friend of Milo, and Joan Cusack (Confessions of a Shopaholic) plays the mom.
