Pets. Sometimes you look at them and wonder to yourself just what the hell they could be thinking. What if you could tune in? What if you could hear every word? In The Voices these cats and dogs are thinking about a lot more than just Beggin’ Strips and milk rings.
Deadline reports that Mandalay Vision and Vertigo Entertainment will team on The Voices, a psychological thriller that will be directed by Marjane Satrapi from a script by Paranormal Activity’s Michael R. Perry. As some background, the script made the Black List previously, and Satrapi got an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature for her first film, Persepolis, adapted from her semi-autobiographical novel.
Mandalay Vision will finance the film, and Mandalay’s Matthew Rhodes and Cathy Schulman are producing with Vertigo Entertainment’s Roy Lee. Mandalay Senior Vice President Adam Stone will also produce. Casting is under way, and the intention is to begin production in the early part of 2013.
