Mark Osborne's animated musical The Little Prince has announced that James Franco, Rachel McAdams, Jeff Bridges, Marion Cotillard, Benicio Del Toro and Paul Giamatti are all on board to star.

The film centers on a airplane pilot, who crash-lands in the Shara Desert. He comes across a young boy that claims to be a prince from his home on an asteroid. During his time repairing the downed aircraft, the young boy tells stories about the foolish inhabitants surrounding his asteroid. The project is an adaptation of a novel by French author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

Jeff Bridges will be voicing the pilot with no other roles being confirmed. Mark Osborne is directing the family film, which has Aton Soumache and Dimitri Rassam producing.

Paramount most recently produced a live action adaption, which had Steven Warner, Joss Ackland and Clive Revill starring. No production date has been released.
