Walt Disney Animation and Pixar won’t comment on animated projects in development, and it’s rare when information on one leaks. But sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the new project is an untitled animal comedy that does not yet have a release date.
Howard is well respected in the animation community and one of the directors behind Disney Animation’s recent resurgence. In fact, he directed (with Chris Williams) 2008’s Bolt, which was nominated for an Oscar, and with Nathan Greno co-directed the surprise hit Tangled. He is also a Disney vet, having worked in various jobs on movies ranging from Pocahontas and Mulan to Lilo & Stitch and Brother Bear.
For Bateman, the project would mark his first voice-over work for a feature. The actor, who is gearing up to shoot Warner Bros.’ adaptation of the Jonathan Tropper novel This Is Where I Leave You, lent his voice in the short-lived Fox series Sit Down, Shut Up, among other shows. He is repped by CAA and Hansen Jacobson.

Jason signs autographs for the fans at the Los Angeles Premiere of Season 4 of “Arrested Development”.
Michael Cera talked about the new season of Arrested Development and gave Jason credit for his acting. Here’s what he said:
“My first few scenes were just with Jason which was enormously helpful for me, just finding the voice of the show again. Because he had it, basically right away,” he says. “Jason was a huge part of finding the rhythm of the show in the first place, I would say, just the pace was really a lot of him, I think. The writing was so tight and I think his way of translating that was by just breezing through the jokes and not hanging on them and just flying through it. And so doing a scene with him reminded me of just how sharp you need to be in a scene and keep up with it and be ahead of the joke.”
