The voice of Adam Sandler is both well known, and capable of a lot of different styles and accents. So it’s no wonder Ship of Fooles has tagged him to play the lead role in the new film Something Fishy. A short cartoon about, unsurprisingly fish, this comedic tale of two fish in a bowl promises to be a huge blockbuster, if only because it’s opening on what is bound to be a large Box Office weekend.
Unlike most modern animated films, Something Fishy uses exclusively traditional, hand drawn, animation. No CGI was used. Hand drawn animation has fallen out of style of late, but still has a number of fans.
Sandler will be leaving the Hollywood Stars football team to record the film. Here’s hoping a new Waterboy, and more replacement players, can be found soon.
Co-starring in the film is Scarlett Johansson. Trey Parker is signed to direct. Something Fishy opens December 16.
