Hugh Grant aboard animated “Pirates!” pic for Sony


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Johnny Depp is an American actor living in France who affects a British accent to play a pirate on screen. Hugh Grant, on the other hand, is a British actor who has had great success in the States and will conjure an as-yet-unheard accent to voice the lead character in an animated pirate movie.

See the difference?

Sony announced today that Grant, who has not been seen on screen since 2009’s “Did You Hear About the Morgans?,” will lend his voice to the studio’s “The Pirates! In An Adventure with Scientists,” a stop-motion 3D animated film from the geniuses at Aardman Animations.

Such a strange title, but what a wonderful cast. In addition to Grant, “Pirates” has recruited David Tennant, Imelda Staunton, Jeremy Piven, Salma Hayek, Brian Blessed, Brendan Gleeson, and Ashley Jensen, according to THR.

“I’m so grateful to the entire cast for their talent and energy. Only Hugh could anchor this story of love, loyalty, greed, and nautical high-jinks,” said director Peter Lord.

Columbia Pictures plans to release the animated film next March.
