News arrives via The Hollywood Reporter that Mile Teller (Whiplash) is set to lend his voice to an aardvark in The Ark And The Aardvark.
The movie, as you might be able to guess from the title, is a take on the Noah's Ark story, which finds an aardvark named Gilbert helping a group of misfit animals through natural disasters and personal problems.
John Stevenson (Kung Fu Panda) is currently at work on the film for indie company Unified Pictures, and seems happy with his choice of voice. "Gilbert is young, spirited, sarcastic, and we couldn't have found a more perfect artist to bring Gilbert to life in Miles," says Stevenson in a statement carried by The Hollywood Reporter.
Teller has boxing biopic Bleed For This heading to our screens on 2 December and will also be seen in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) drama Thank You For Your Service.
