Adam Devine, Rachel Bloom, Zazie Beetz and Ken Jeong will head the voice cast for animated US-China co-production Extinct, which is being launched in Toronto by Ralph Kamp’s UK-based sales agent Timeless Films.
The original story follows two donut-shaped animals – flummels – who accidentally time-travel from 1835 to modern-day Shanghai. They discover their species has become extinct and have to find a way to change the course of history.
It is produced by China Lion, HB Wink, Huayi Tencent Entertainment and Tolerable Entertainment and is in production at Cinesite in Montreal.
The film brings together several talents who have worked on The Simpsons animated series and movie, including director David Silverman, co-director Raymond Persi and writers Joel Cohen, John Frink and Rob LaZebnik.
