HeatVision reports that Dreamworks' next animated film Me And My Shadow has cast three of the main voice actors. They include Bill Hader (Superbad, Tropic Thunder, South Park), Josh Gad (Daily Show, Book of Mormon) and Kate Hudson. Hader will play the shadow of Josh's character and Hudson will play the one dimensional love interest. Besides the inclusion of Kate Hudson the project has promise. It will be produced by Melissa Cobb (Kung Fu Panda 2) and the directorial debut of Alessandro Carloni who worked on How To Train Your Dragon.
Me And My Shadow centers on Stan, a shadow (Hader) who yearns for a more exciting life than being attached to a timid human named Stanley Grubb (Gad). When a crime in the shadow community puts both of their lives in danger, Stan is forced to take control of Stanley, thrusting both of them into an adventure featuring a shadowy villain, who intends to lead a rebellion to take over the human world. It will be released on November 13th 2013 going up against Marvel's Thor 2.
