Marjane Satrapi’s English-language debut The Voices premiered at Sundance last year and is gearing up for release in the U.S. via Lionsgate and in the UK via Arrow Films (see trailer above). Ryan Reynolds plays a lovable, but disturbed, factory worker who yearns for the attention of a woman in accounting. When their relationship takes a sudden turn, the man’s talking pets — a sinister cat and benevolent dog — lead him down a fantastical, murderous path. Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick, and Jacki Weaver co-star. Michael R Perry wrote the script and Matthew Rhodes, Adi Shankar, Roy Lee and Spencer Silna produced. Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud’s Persepolis was nominated for an Animated Feature Oscar in 2008. Lionsgate unleashes The Voices in theaters and on demand on February 6, Arrow takes it out on March 20.
