LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Penelope Cruz will provide the voice of a brainy guinea pig in "G-Force," a combination live-action/computer-animated film from Disney.
The story revolves around a group of ultra-intelligent animal commandos who work for a government agency trying to prevent an evil billionaire from taking over the world.
Cruz joins a voice cast that includes Nicolas Cage, Steve Buscemi and Tracy Morgan. Bill Nighy and Will Arnett are among the human actors in the ensemble cast.
"G-Force" marks the directorial debut of visual effects innovator Hoyt Yeatman, who won an Oscar for his work on "The Abyss." Prolific filmmaker Jerry Bruckheimer is producing.
Cruz's upcoming projects include "Elegy" and Woody Allen's "Vicky Cristina Barcelona."
