The One and Only Ivan: Bryan Cranston star alongside Angelina Jolie in the new Disney movie
The Hollywood Reporter announced that the Oscar-nominated Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad, Godzilla) will join the Oscar winner Angelina Jolie (Tomb Raider, Maleficent)in The film The One and Only Ivan from Walt Disney Pictures that will be realized in mixed media, including live-action and animation.
The film will be the adaptation of the novel illustrated by Katherine Applegate, published by HarperCollins in 2011 and winner of the Medal Newbery. The story is inspired by the true story of Ivan, a gorilla who has spent 27 years closed between the walls of the glass cage in a shopping centre. The story is narrated from his point of view. Ivan has grown accustomed to the looks of human beings, and never took into consideration the life in the jungle. Keeps himself busy painting, watching television and spending time with his friends Stella and Bob. When he meets Ruby, an elephant, newborn, stolen from the jungle, is forced to see his house and his art through a new light.
Bryan Cranston will play the owner of the shopping center, a man who abuses animals and forces them to perform for their customers. Angelina Jolie will lend voice to Star and the elephant while the Oscar-nominated Sam Rockwell (the Three Posters Ebbing, Missouri) will give voice to Ivan.
Angelina Jolie will produce the film along with Bricham Taylor. Also Allison Shearmur, who died recently, will be credited among the producers. Thea Sharrock (Me before you) will direct the film from a screenplay by Mike White (School of Rock).
