Warner Bros. announced Monday that Andy Samberg and Kelsey Grammer have joined the cast of Storks, an animated film that attempts to explain why storks and baby deliveries have so frequently been connected in popular culture. The film is set for release on Sept. 23, 2016. Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) wrote the film and will co-direct with Doug Sweetland.
Storks is an original script of Stoller’s that aims to put a unique spin on the classic fable of storks.
Stoller will also produce alongside Brad Lewis. Other executive producers set for the film are Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Crazy, Stupid Love), Phil Lord and Chrisopher Miller (The LEGO Movie) and Jared Stern.
The news comes along with information on when to expect a few of Warner Bros.’ other animated films – namely, its upcoming LEGO Movie sequel and spin-offs. (LEGO Batman!)
