Rose Byrne, James Corden in talks to star in Peter Rabbit movie
James Corden and Rose Byrne are going down the rabbit hole.
The Late Late Show host and the Neighbors 2 actress are in negotiations to star in Sony’s upcoming film based on the Peter Rabbit children’s books, EW has confirmed. Corden would voice the eponymous hare, while Byrne would play a human character.
Will Gluck (Easy A, Friends With Benefits) is directing the movie, which is to combine CG animation with live action. It’s envisioned as a modern interpretation of Beatrix Potter‘s tales (first published between 1902 and 1912), with a story centered on the rivalry between the rascally Peter Rabbit and gardening enthusiast Mr. McGregor.
