Rosie Perez, Craig Ferguson and Arsenio Hall have joined Christina Ricci on the voice cast of Exodus Film Group's CG animated feature The Hero Of Color City.

Exodus Film Group founder and CEO John D Eraklis and president Max Howard are producing the story of a pack of crayons who save their land from a tyrant.

Ferguson will voice the king's sidekick Gnat, Perez will portray the fiery crayon Red and Hall will voice the level-headed crayon Blue. As previously announced, Ricci will play the timid crayon Yellow.

Exodus has signed a multi-book deal with Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing to create a publishing programme to accompany the film, set to reach theatres by 2010.

Exodus' pipeline includes Bunyan & Babe starring John Goodman and Kelsey Grammer.
