In a story from Variety, Jamie Foxx and 20th Century Fox Animation are coming together to make Welcome to the Jungle. The film is based on an original pitch from Foxx and scribe Malcolm Spellman (Our Family Wedding).
Foxx is going to star in this animated film. He'll also produce with manager and partner Jamie Rucker King. Foxx is also going to write original music for the film. This is Foxx's first foray into feature film animation.
Spellman is writing the script, however Fox is keeping the storyline a secret.
"I'm psyched about Welcome to the Jungle because it's specifically built to utilize Jamie's talent with voices and as a musician," Spellman stated.
