He’s already conquered the music world… And, now Pitbull is preparing to take on Hollywood.
The 31-year-old Cuban American singer—who sings the theme song to Men In Black III, entitled “Back in Time”—has been cast in Epic, a new 3D CG-animated film by the makers of Ice Age and Rio.
Pitbull is set to lend his voice to one of the animated film’s characters, Bufo.
The film, which had been developed under the title Leafmen, will star Beyonce Knowles as Queen Tara, Colin Farrell as Ronin, The Hunger Games’ Josh Hutcherson as Nod, Amanda Seyfried as Mary Katherine, Johnny Knoxville as Mandrake and Aziz Ansari as Mub.
Epic is described as a battle deep in the forest between the forces of good and evil. When a teenaged girl finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, she must band together with a rag-tag team of fun and whimsical characters to save that world, which in turn saves the real world.
Epic is slated for release on May 24, 2013.
