Dreamworks Animation has set the cast for its upcoming movie, Me & My Shadow, with THR reporting that Kate Hudson, Josh Gad, and Bill Hader will be voicing characters in the movie, which has been in the works since December 2010.
The movie centres on Stan (Bill Hader), a shadow who wishes for a more adventurous life than being attached to the dull Stanley Grubbs (Josh Gad). Stan gets his wish when a dangerous crime in the shadow community forces Stan to take control of Stanley. Kate Hudson will voice Stanley’s possible love interest.
Alessandro Carloni is set to make his feature directorial debut with Me and My Shadow, after serving as the head of story on How to Train Your Dragon. Carloni took over from Mark Dindal who was going to direct when they project was first announced. Tom J. Astle and Matt Ember are writing the screenplay, based on the original draft by Steve Bencich and Ron J. Friedman.
