The English language version of the Oscar nominated animated film A Cat in Paris opens on June 1st in select U.S. theaters, and GKIDS has just revealed the actors taking on key roles in the English language version. Marcia Gay Harden, Anjelica Huston, Matthew Modine, and Steve Blum lead the voice cast in this “love letter to classic noir films and the stylized wit of the Pink Panther cartoons.”
A Cat in Paris was nominated in the 2012 Best Animated Feature category, losing out to Gore Verbinski’s chameleon with an identity crisis tale: Rango.
Dino is a cat that leads a double life. By day he lives with Zoe, a little girl whose mother is a detective in the Parisian police force. But at night he sneaks out the window to work with Nico, a slinky cat burglar with a big heart, whose fluid movements are poetry in motion as he slips and swishes from rooftop to rooftop across the Paris skyline. The cat’s two worlds collide when young Zoe decides to follow Dino on his nocturnal adventures – and falls into the hands of Victor Costa, a blustery gangster planning the theft of a rare statue. Now cat and cat burglar must team up to save Zoe from the bumbling thieves, leading to a thrilling acrobatic finale on top of Notre Dame.
