Jamie Foxx to star in animated film

Jamie Foxx is to be the multi-tasking star of a new animated film, Welcome To The Jungle.
The Oscar-winning actor, who thought up and pitched the original idea to 20th Century Fox, will lend his vocal talents as one of the lead characters, and will also compose the soundtrack and produce alongside manager and partner Jamie Rucker King with their company FoxxKing Entertainment.
"I'm psyched about Welcome To The Jungle because it's specifically built to utilise Jamie's talent with voices and as a musician," writer Malcolm Spellman told Variety.
The story is being kept under wraps, although the tagline says: "Life is a jungle and welcome to it."
It will be Jamie's first foray into animation.
The star's recent big screen outings included Valentine's Day and Law Abiding Citizen.
