[b]Kelly Ripa Joins 'Fly Me To The Moon' All-Star Cast[/b]
Kelly Ripa (ABC's "Live with Regis and Kelly") joins an all-star cast for "Fly Me To The Moon," the first-ever feature-length computer generated animated film, conceived and created entirely in 3-D. The film is produced by Illuminata Pictures and nWave Pictures, the production entity responsible for nearly one quarter of all 3-D IMAX films. "Moon" is directed by nWave co-founder Ben Stassen who has created, directed and produced world-famous ride and attraction films, including "Wild Safari" (nWave Pictures Distribution), "Haunted Castle" (nWave) and "Alien Adventure" (nWave). The announcement was made today by Illuminata Pictures co-founder and "Moon" writer / executive producer Domonic Paris.
Stassen comments, "Recent advances in computer technology make it possible to convert 2-D films to 3-D. However, with 'Fly Me To The Moon,' we are taking it a step further by producing every frame in 3-D for the maximum 3-D effect."
Paris says, "With more 3-D films entering the market, such as 'Monster House' and 'Meet the Robinsons,' more theaters are adopting 3-D capabilities. By the time we release 'Fly Me To The Moon' in 2007, we anticipate that there will be approximately 700 specialized digital theaters, while in 2005, there were only 300 3-D theaters available."
Set in 1969, when the NASA space program was in full swing, "Fly Me To The Moon" combines the Apollo 11 mission with the adventures of three young stowaway flies.
Also starring are Buzz Aldrin (former Apollo 11 astronaut), Adrienne Barbeau (HBO's "Carnivale," "The Drew Carey Show"), Ed Begley Jr. ("Six Feet Under"), Tim Curry ("Jumanji," "Scary Movie 2"),Trevor Gagnon ("Big Fish," CBS' "The New Adventures of Old Christine"), Christopher Lloyd ("Back to the Future," "Taxi"), Robert Patrick ("Walk the Line," "Spy Kids") and Nicollette Sheridan ("Desperate Housewives").
Stassen adds, "As the first true 3-D release, 'Fly Me To The Moon' has the incredible benefit that it cannot be pirated, and it also has a larger and longer shelf-life."
The film is an nWave Pictures production in collaboration with Illuminata Pictures, and it is slated to open in an estimated 700 specialized 3-D theaters worldwide in Spring 2007.
