Sony Announces Casting for Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Sequel

Sony Pictures Animation has finally managed to assemble an all star, comedy voice cast for the upcoming Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs sequel, Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers, which is scheduled for release in 3D on February 7, 2014. The sequel will be helmed by director Cody Cameron (Shrek, Madagascar, Surf’s Up, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) and Kris Pearn. Kirk Bodyfelt will be producing.

The lead voice cast from the original Cloudy will be returning, including Bill Hader (Saturday Night Live, Men In Black 3) as inventor Flint Lockwood; Anna Faris (Scary Movie, The House Bunny) as brainy weather girl Sam Sparks; James Caan (The Godfather, Elf) as Flint’s technophobic dad, Tim Lockwood; Andy Samberg (Saturday Night Live, Hotel Transylvania) as Swallow Falls’ local celebrity “Baby” Brent; Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother, The Smurfs) as Steve the gummy bear-loving monkey; and Benjamin Bratt (Law & Order, Miss Congeniality) as Sam’s mild mannered cameraman Manny. In addition, Terry Crews (The Expendables 2) joins the cast to take on the role of Earl, the town cop.

Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers starts where Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs left off. Flint Lockwood’s genius is finally being recognized as he’s invited by his idol Chester V to join The Live Corp Company, where the best and brightest inventors in the world create technologies for the good of mankind. Chester’s assistant – and one of his greatest inventions – is Barb, a highly evolved orangutan with a human brain, who is also devious and manipulative. When Flint discovers that his infamous machine is now creating mutant food beasts, he and his friends must battle hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees, apple pie-thons, double bacon cheespiders and other food creatures to save the world again!

Commenting on the announcement, Sony Pictures Digital Productions’ President Bob Osher, said, “Cloudy was a tremendous hit acclaimed by critics and audiences alike, and we’re thrilled to be bringing everyone back together for Cloudy 2.” Sony Pictures Animation’s President of Production Michelle Raimo Kouyate added, “Not only are we bringing the old gang back, we are introducing some hilarious new characters in a brand new adventure that matches the wit and freshness of the original. We have a great story and we love Cody and Kris’s take on the characters and material.”
