Jeremy Renner to play an arctic fox in animated movie

TORONTO, Sept. 3 (UPI) — Jeremy Renner is to voice the lead character of arctic fox Swifty in the 3D, CGI-animated, family film Arctic Justice: Thunder Squad, producers have announced.

The ensemble voice cast will also include Alec Baldwin, Heidi Klum, John Cleese, James Franco, Anjelica Huston and Omar Sy.

“When the sinister Doc Walrus hatches a secret plot to accelerate global warming and melt the arctic circle, a rag-tag group of inexperienced heroes must come together to foil his evil plans and save the arctic,” a synopsis said.

“Jeremy is as talented a performer as you’ll find anywhere in the world and we’re very happy he’s bringing his talents to the Arctic for this fun, big-screen adventure for the whole family,” producer Andrea Iervolino said in a statement.

“Jeremy’s voice, energy and charisma will be the center of this heartwarming, family-friendly comedy. His animated nature lends itself perfectly to Swifty’s character. We believe that this contemporary voice cast will resonate with audiences. The real life-takeaway from this animation is entertaining and thought-provoking all at the same time,” added producer Monika Bacardi.

Renner is known for his work in The Arrival, The Avengers, The Bourne Legacy, The Hurt Locker, The Town, American Hustle and Kill the Messenger.
