Cartoon Network Completes Production on First Original Live-Action Movie Re-Animated

ATLANTA -- Cartoon Network announced today that it has completed principal photography on its first-ever original live-action television movie, Re-Animated, which will combine elements of live-action and animation. The project, about a 12-year-old boy whose life is turned upside down after an accident at an amusement park, was announced in March at Cartoon Network�s upfront presentation and is currently in post-production with a premiere date yet to be determined.

�When we decided to venture into the territory of live-action we knew it was going to have to be an event like nothing we�ve ever done before,� said Michael Ouweleen, senior vice president, programming and development for Cartoon Network. �And even though we are featuring live-action characters, it still had to be done the Cartoon Network way. Re-Animated has proven to be that kind of project.�

Dominic Janes (Alex Taggert on ER) stars as 12-year-old Jimmy Roberts, who while visiting the famous Gollyworld Park, has an accident with the park trolley that requires an emergency brain transplant. Gollyworld doctors give him the frozen brain of the famous cartoonist Milt Appleday (comedy veteran Fred Willard), which enables Jimmy to see a whole world of cartoon characters who turn his life upside down wherever he goes.

Also joining the cast are Micah Karns as Craig, Jimmy�s best friend; Eunice Cho as Robin, Jimmy�s crush; and Matt Knudsen as Sonny, Milt Appleday�s evil son who�s trying to steal his father�s brain from Jimmy. Rounding out the cast are Bil Dwyer as the Dad, Rachel Quaintance as the Mom, and Rhea Lando as Yancy, Jimmy�s alien step-sister.

Actors Paul Reubens, Tom Kenny, Ellen Greene and Brian Posehn lend their voices to the Appleday cartoon characters that come to life only for Jimmy.

Re-Animated is created and written by Adam Pava and Tim McKeon, who were writers on Cartoon Network�s hit series Foster�s Home for Imaginary Friends and The Life & Times of Juniper Lee. The film is directed by New York-based filmmaker Bruce Hurwit.

Re-Animated is a Renegade Animation, Appleday Pictures, and Cartoon Network production.

Cartoon Network (CartoonNetwork.com), currently seen in nearly 91 million U.S. homes and 160 countries around the world, is Turner Broadcasting System, Inc.�s ad-supported cable service offering the best in original, acquired and classic animated entertainment for kids and families.
