Gemma Arterton, Nicholas Hoult and Stephen Fry are set to voice characters in animated adventure Once Upon A Time In The Kitchen.

The British trio will lend their voices to the family film, which will be directed by Alexander Williams, reported Screen Daily.

The story, which has been written by Friends writer Chris Brown, focuses on the rivalry between everyday utensils and the posh silver and cutlery and like Toy Story, takes place when humans are away.

The director described Once Upon A Time In The Kitchen as "a fantasy adventure aimed squarely at a family audience, but with enough sophisticated wit to keep the grown-ups happy.

"To me the best animated films invite the audience in to a world that they have never seen before - and could not possibly see outside of the medium of animation. We want to bring a familiar world to life in a completely unfamiliar way - what really happens in the kitchen after dark, when the humans leave?" he added.

Producer Spencer Pollard, CEO of Kaleidoscope (KFD) said: "The film has all the right ingredients to be a potential global theatrical family smash with excellent animation, a very fun script and A-list voice talent both for the UK and international market."

No release date for the film has been announced yet.
