Brendan Fraser has signed on to star in and Roger Kumble will direct Furry Vengeance, a live-action family comedy that will start production by early summer, according to Variety.

Fraser will play a real estate developer whose new housing subdivision pushes far into a pristine part of the Oregon wilderness, pitting the developer against a band of angry critters.

Robert Simonds will produce with Keith Goldberg. Script was penned by Michael Carnes and Josh Gilbert, who wrote Mr. Woodcock together.

Production will begin early summer.
