Another, Nicer Look At Dreamworks’ Turbo, A Great Voice Cast And Superb Writer Too

In announcing their voice cast, Dreamworks have also added another writers’ name to the roster for Turbo, their upcoming “racing snail” toon.

Joining Ryan Reynolds, who is providing the voice for the title character, will be:

Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Luis Guzmán, Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Kurtwood Smith, Snoop Dogg and Samuel L. Jackson.

And the newly named writer is Robert Siegel, joining director David Soren and Darren Lemke. If Turbo is a sports movie, as it kinda-sorta seems to be, then Siegel is a real asset. His two kinda-sorta sports movies, The Wrestler and Big Fan are both brilliantly scripted character pieces.

Wow. Is this going to be the “Big Fan meets The Wrestler of racing snail movies”? Because that’s a poster tagline made to appeal to me.

Those details came from THR, as did the image at the head of the post. A good choice of picture I think, and perfect timing, as that horrible poster we had a week or so ago has just gone pretty wide across the web.
