James Franco, Rachel McAdams and Jeff Bridges among voice cast of ‘Little Prince’

 
The cast of ‘Little Prince’ is turning into a quite the list of Hollywood talent. Among some of the stars that have been attached to the film is James Franco, Rachel McAdams, Jeff Bridges, Marion Cotillard, Benicio Del Toro and Paul Giamatti.
 
The film ‘Little Prince’ is a new adaptation of a classic French novel written by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. This new version will be directed by Marc Osborne, the same director of the hit film “Kung Fu Panda”. There have been numerous versions of the book released on almost every possible medium, though few have had universal success, if any success at all.
 
Producing the fim is Aton Soumache and Dimitri Rassam, from Onyx Films. Their last popular animated picture was in 2006 ‘Renaissance’. If you are new to French literature, the book was published as Le Petit Prince in 1943 and translated into languages around the world. The story itself is about a young pilot who crashes in the Sahara Desert, once there he finds a young boy. The child claims to be a prince who has fallen to earth from an asteroid. With the backdrop of the pilot repairing the plane, the boy tells him of his travels, his world and his friends he has met along the way.
