"Glee" star Chris Colfer and Ron Perlman have come on board to Marza Animation Planet's animated film "Robodog," to be directed by Henry F. Anderson III ("Stuart Little").
Timeless Films is handling international rights and will present "Robodog" to buyers at next month's European Film Market in Berlin.
Paul Wang is producing "Robodog" with Robert Reece and William Schneider writing.Voiceover work starts Feb. 1.
Colfer's voicing an energetic but overzealous robotic dog and Perlman is supplying the voice to a curmudgeonly real dog, set in his ways with little patience for anything new.
The project is Colfer's first animated role. He also wrote and starred in "Struck By Lightning," directed by Brian Dannelly.
Perlman's voiceover work includes "Tangled," "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" and the upcoming "The Book of Life."
