Natalie Portman to Produce and Star in FOXY TROTTER

Natalie Portman (‘Jackie,’ ‘Annihilation,’ ‘Song to Song’) is set to lend her voice and produce the upcoming animated feature ‘Foxy Trotter,’ with ‘Metalocalypse’ and ‘Motorcity’ helmer Chris Prynoski directing

Penned by Jess Rotter, Michael Reich, Jessica Hundley and Mike Pinkney, the film tells the story of the titular character: a motorcycle-riding, rock and roll photographer in the early ’70s on a mission to capture the perfect rock photo.

Portman will voice to Foxy’s best friend, Ronnie, who is “seduced by her arch-rival Gunter and offered as a sacrifice in Gunter’s evil plan to destroy the universe.”

In a statement to the trade, Prynoski described the film as wild mix of ‘Barbarella’ meets ‘Sausage Party’ meets ‘Easy Rider.’

The project marks the first animated feature from indie production company Bold Films (‘Nightcrawler,’ ‘No Escape’). Producers include Michel Litvak and Gary Michael Walters, Chris and Shannon Prynoski and Ben Kalina of animation shingle Titmouse (‘Black Dynamite,’ ‘China, IL,’ ‘Big Mouth’). Lisa Zambri and Jessica Hundley are executive producing.
