Chris Colfer, Ron Perlman to Voice 'Robodog' Anime Feature
TOKYO – Chris Colfer (Glee) and Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy) will voice the lead canine characters in Robodog, Marza Animation Planet's first original production, a 3D CG feature directed by Henry F. Anderson III (Stuart Little).
"The kid in me is barely being contained right now -- I'm so happy to get the chance to work on my first animated film," said Colfer of the role.
"We are absolutely ecstatic that Chris has chosen Robodog as his first foray into animation. Coupled with Ron's extraordinary voiceover work, the duo's talent will make for great chemistry onscreen," said Marza's CEO Masanao Maeda.
Perlman's voiceover work has included Disney's Tangled and Fox's Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.
Marza, a subsidiary of Japanese game-maker Sega Sammy, has offices in L.A. and Tokyo, and worked on last year's animated 3D epic Space Pirate Captain Harlock for Toei Animation.
Robodog is currently in preproduction, with voiceover work set to start on Feb. 1.
The U.K.'s Timeless Films will be representing Robodog at the European Film Market in Berlin next month.
