"George Clooney is going to be Mr. Fox. Bill Murray has a part. Jason [Schwartzman] is doing a voice. That's our team. It will take a couple years to do the animating. It's stop-motion. It's like The Nightmare Before Christmas or those Christmas specials. These [characters] have fur, so it's not like Claymation."
He continued, saying, "The settings will be very natural. We want to use real trees and real sand, but it's all miniature."
The film has a 2009 release date.
