has signed on to voice the rascally Great Dane "Marmaduke," Fox's adaptation of the long-running comic strip.
Wilson's boarding is the last piece of the puzzle for the live-action/computer-animated movie, which has shades of Fox's surprise smash "Marley & Me" and follows a family named the Winslows who move from Kansas to Orange County with their dog Marmaduke, a slobbery pooch who creates chaos wherever he goes.
The film sees Marmaduke navigate a volatile Mutts vs. Pedigrees turf war, woo the purebred of his dreams and overcome a fall from grace. Judy Greer
, Lee Pace
and William H. Macy
play the humans, while Fergie, Emma Stone
, George Lopez
, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Steve Coogan
, Damon Wayans
, Marlon Wayans
supply the voices.
Tom Dey is directing the family comedy, which has a June 2010 release date. Wilson starred opposite a rambunctious lab in Fox's "Marley" and did voice work in the studio's upcoming animated Wes Anderson picture "The Fantastic Mr. Fox." He is following the steps of Bill Murray
, who voiced another famous comic strip animal, the lasagna-loving cat "Garfield," also from Fox.
