Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie to Voice New Canterville Ghost

British actors Hugh Laurie (House) and Stephen Fry (Bones, The Hobbit), who used to work together as the comedy duo Fry & Laurie will be reuniting for a CG-animated feature retelling of The Canterville Ghost.

Based on the classic Oscar Wilde story, The Canterville Ghost follows the story of a 300-year-old spirit and his nemesis, a gardener, who is revealed to be the personification of Death himself. The story is set in 19th century England, and also concerns an American family who moved to Canterville.

Fry and Laurie have worked on a large number of popular comedies, including the Jeeves and Wooster comedies from the 90s, and the duo have also worked with Rowan Atkinson in the popular Black Adder series.

The Canterville Ghost’s animation will be divided between D’Arblay films in the UK and Arc Productions studio in Toronto. Backed by the BFI Film Fund, the movie is slated for a Christmas 2014 release.
