A voice cast headed by Bill Hader, Anna Faris, James Caan, Andy Samberg, Bruce Campbell, Mr. T, and Tracy Morgan, will bring to life the characters of Sony Pictures Animation's CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS, set for release January 15, 2010, in mouthwatering 3D.
The Columbia Pictures film is written and directed by Chris Miller and Phil Lord, based on the bestselling children's book written by Judi Barrett and illustrated by Ron Barrett about a town where food falls from the sky like rain. Pam Marsden is the producer.
Hader will voice Flint Lockwood, a young inventor who dreams of creating something that will improve everyone's life. Faris takes on the role of Sam Sparks, a weathergirl covering the phenomenon who hides her intelligence behind a perky exterior.
Caan plays Tim Lockwood, Flint's technophobic father. Samberg plays Brent, the town bully who has plagued Flint since childhood. Campbell plays Mayor Shelbourne, who figures out that Flint's invention can put the town, and more importantly himself, on the map. Mr. T plays the by-the-rules town cop Earl Devereaux, and Morgan takes on the role of Earl's rule-breaking son, Cal.
