Will Smith will be voicing a debonair secret agent named Lance Sterling and Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland is voicing a scientific genius named Lance in the animated comedy, Spies in Disguise. The Fox Animation, Chernin Entertainment, and Blue Sky Studios production is directed by Nick Bruno and Troy Quane, based on the short film Pigeon: Impossible by Lucas Martell.
Spies in Disguise is set to open in theaters on January 18, 2019.
Will Smith recently wrapped up work on the sci-fi drama Bright from director David Ayer (Suicide Squad, End of Watch) and has just begun filming Disney’s Aladdin. Tom Holland is reprising his role as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Avengers: Infiniti War and the untitled 2019 Spider-Man sequel.
The Plot: Spies in Disguise is a buddy comedy set in the high octane globe-trotting world of international espionage. Will Smith voices 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 Tom 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.
