The AARDMAN animation team behind hit movie CHICKEN RUN have revealed details about their next film.
The TORTOISE AND THE HARE is at least two years away (03) from being released in British cinema - however PETER LORD and NICK PARK say the film will be, "a sort of SPINAL TAP meets AESOP'S FABLES!" Lord says, "It's a modern take on the tale with a documentary element to it. "But it's still two years away so don't hold your breath."
Comedian PAUL WHITEHOUSE and veteran star SIR MICHAEL CAINE are rumoured to be providing the voices for the film.
