Obviously I haven't outgrown cartoons, because I'm secretly stoked for this animated film news. Anne Hathaway and Neil Patrick Harris are reportedly in talks for Rio, which follows a macaw who breaks out of his Minnesota cage for the lively city of Rio de Janeiro. Sounds like a cute concept, right?
The film already has a release date of April 8, 2011, and it will be filmed in 3D digital animation. No word yet on who the actors will be voicing, but I sort of imagine Hathaway putting on her best "don't cha know" Minnesotan accent as the macaw's owner, and NPH delivering the laughs as a Brazilian parrot in a samba costume. (Hey, just a thought, producers.)
