Hilary Swank and Susan Sarandon join Jessica Biel in the 3D animated pic Spark, directed by Aaron Woodley for Toonbox Entertainment, Redrover and Gulfstream, the team behind The Nut Job. It’s a big space-age battle between good and evil. From a screenplay by Doug Hadders, Adam Rotstein and Woodley, the action-packed, humor and heart-filled Spark follows a teenage monkey Spark, voiced by Jace Norman (Nickelodeon’s Henry Danger), and his friends Vix, a battle-ready fox voiced by Jessica Biel, and Chunk, a tech-savvy warthog, as they embark on a mission to take back the besieged Planet Bana from the power-mad General Zhong. Spark’s dangerous odyssey leads him to the farthest reaches of the universe, and to the secret of his true identity, with characters like the comically forgetful nanny robot Bananny, voiced by Susan Sarandon, and the noble, self-sacrificing Queen, voiced by Hilary Swank by his side. Spark is produced by ToonBox and Redrover, in association with Gulfstream Pictures, which is handling U.S. sales. Executive producers are Hong Kim, Jay HJ Ahn and Daniel Woo, and Gulfstream Pictures’ Mike Karz and Bill Bindley. Fully financed by Redrover and its partners, the film is currently in production with plans for a 2016 release.
