Comedians Louis C.K. and Kevin Hart have recently added to the voice cast least of Illumination Entertainment’s untitled original animated project, which is known at this point as “Untitled Pets Movie.” Despite the lack of an official title, the film has already been given a release schedule: February 12, 2016.
The Untitled Pets Movie is being produced by Illumination CEO Chris Meledandri and his longtime collaborator Janet Healy. Directorial duties are handled by Chris Renaud and Yarrow Cheney, with the scrip coming from Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio.
The official synopsis:
“The action comedy is set in a Manhattan apartment building. After the two-legged residents head for work and school, their pets gather to start their day, which consists of hanging out, trading humiliating stories about their owners, and helping each other work up adorable looks that will lead to more snacks. The head hound is a quick witted terrier rescue (Louis C.K.), whose position at the epicenter of his master’s universe is suddenly threatened when she comes home with Duke (Stonestreet), a sloppy mongrel with no polish. The two soon find themselves on the mean streets of New York, where they meet the adorable white bunny Snowball (Hart). It turns out that Snowball is the leader of an army of pets that were abandoned and are determined to get back at humanity and every owner-loving pet. The dogs must thwart this plot and make it back in time for dinner.”
