Matthew McConaughey has signed to voice star in one of Illumination Entertainment’s untitled animated projects due for release in 2016.

Much of the animated feature’s details are being kept in the dark (un-illuminated, shall we say) but it is described as a music-driven event comedy tackling courage, competition and carrying a tune.
It is not known what kind of character McConaughey will lend his pipes to.

Garth Jennings, the man who wrote and directed the indie drama Son of Rambow and directed 2005’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, wrote the script and is directing. Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy are producing.

The movie has a release date of Dec. 21, 2016.

This is a rare animated outing for McConaughey, who has Interstellar in theatres and is pre-production on The Free State of Jones, a drama being directed by Gary Ross. The only other time the actor has done voice work in animation is for Kubo and the Two Strings. The Laike Entertainment movie is currently in production with an eye towards an August 2016 release date




“Interstellar” was nominated in five categories at the Oscars in 2015: Original Score, Production Design, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Visual Effects.

The ceremony will be hosted by actor Neil Patrick Harris and held in Los Angeles (USA), on 22 February. Check out the full list at Variety.com.
