When talking with producer Jerry Bruckheimer about his new live-action/animated 3-D film, it’s best not to ask what the ”G” in the title stands for. ”Uh, I have no idea,” he says. Oh, come on, really? ”Guinea pig, I guess. They’re these James Bond guinea pigs.” Indeed, the film follows an elite team of guinea pigs trained to be spies for the U.S. government — until Arnett gets wind of it. ”I play an FBI agent named Kip — I can’t give you the last name due to federal secrecy laws,” he explains. ”I’m confused, as the audience might be, about why somebody is teaching guinea pigs how to talk. That’s absurd.” The project was born after first-time director Yeatman’s young son wondered if their new guinea pig could become a secret agent. An Oscar-winning effects guru (The Abyss), Yeatman had some concept art drawn up, and brought it to Bruckheimer. ”I just thought they were so cute,” Bruckheimer says of the characters. That’s right: The most explosive producer in Hollywood has finally gone cuddly.
