Curtis collars comedy gig in Dis' 'Border'


Jamie Lee Curtis has joined Walt Disney Pictures' lost-dog comedy "South of the Border."

Curtis joins Piper Perabo as the only other live-action character in the film. The rest of the cast, which includes Drew Barrymore, George Lopez, Andy Garcia, Salma Hayek, Cheech Marin, Paul Rodriguez, Placido Domingo, Edward James Olmos and Eddie "Piolin" Sotelo, will lend their voices to the Raja Gosnell-helmed project.

David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman and John Jacobs are producing.

Disney's LouAnne Brickhouse and Todd Murata are overseeing for the studio.

Curtis' film credits include "The Kid & I" and "Christmas With the Kranks."

She is repped by CAA and the law firm of Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum & Morris.
