Fantastic Mr. Fox

Allocine has announced two of the actors who will be voicing Fantastic Mr. Fox in la version française, and they’re on par with their American counterparts. Mathieu Amalric (Quantam of SolaceThe Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Arnuad Desplechin‘s A Chrismas Tale) will be providing the dub for Mr. Fox, and Isballe Huppert (8 Women, The Piano Teacher, I Heart Huckabees) will be voicing Mrs. Fox.

No other cast for the dub has been announced, but as The Playlist speculates, Wes is likely involved in this version of the film and its casting. If more interesting names pop up we’ll be sure to let you know.
