Fox Animation, Chernin Entertainment and Blue Sky Studios have announced that Tom Holland (‘Spider-Man: Homecoming,’ ‘Chaos Walking’) and Will Smith (‘Suicide Squad,’ ‘Bright’) are set to team for the animated espionage comedy, ‘Spies in Disguise.’
Based on Lucas Martell’s 2009 short ‘Pigeon: Impossible,’ the animated buddy comedy is set in the high octane globe-trotting world of international espionage, with Smith voicing Lance Sterling, the world’s most awesome spy. Cool, charming and super-skilled, saving the world is his occupation. And nobody does it better.
Almost the exact opposite of Lance is Walter, voiced by Holland. Walter is a great mind but perhaps not a great socializer. What he lacks in social skills though, he makes up for in smarts and invention: Walter is the scientific genius who invents the gadgets Lance uses on his missions.
But when events take an unexpected turn, Walter and Lance suddenly have to rely on each other in a whole new way. And if this odd couple can’t learn to work as a team, the whole world is in peril.
Nick Bruno and Troy Quane are directing the project, with an early 2019 release eyed.
