Amy Poehler Joins Voice Cast of ‘Turkeys’
Amy Poehler has been cast as the female lead in the animated film Turkeys, which is now set for release in November according to The Wrap. Poehler joins Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson who star as two turkeys who travel back in time to the first Thanksgiving in hopes of removing turkeys from the family feast’s tradition. Other cast members include Lesley Nicol, George Takei, Keith David, Colm Meaney, and Dan Fogler.
The film had been set for a November 2014 release but Relativity Media is now pushing for a November 1, 2013 release. Given the theme, a November release date would be a clear advantage in the marketing and interest for the film. Also affecting the date shift was Dreamworks moving it’s animated film Mr. Peabody & Sherman from the November 1st date.
