The Boss Baby is getting its act together. DreamWorks Animation’s new project has added Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow, Steve Buscemi, Patton Oswalt, and Miles Bakshi, EW has learned. They will be joining Alec Baldwin, who voices the eponymous infant.
DreamWorks vet Tom McGrath (Madagascar, Megamind) helms the adaptation of Marla Frazee’s award-winning children’s book of the same name. The picture book, whose cover depicts a baby donning a suit, follows a baby who takes over his family’s life upon arriving. The movie will focus on a 7-year-old brother (Bakshi) trying to steal the attention of his parents back.
Kimmel and Kudrow are set to play the parents. Oswalt will narrate and voices the older brother as an adult. Meanwhile, Buscemi stars as the evil CEO of Puppy Co., a role previously held by Kevin Spacey, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Boss Baby is set to open March 10, 2017.
