ALEXANDRE DESPLAT's "Fantastic Mr.Fox" (2009)

Lots of songs, and some original score Mr.Desplat coming our way for his latest assignment, Fantastic Mr.Fox.

Jarvis Cocker
has written three or four songs for the film. The American Cathedral in Paris's choir were also hired to sing a four-line poem in the film.

Fantastic Mr. Fox is a 2009 stop motion animated film based on Roald Dahl's book of the same name. It will be produced by Regency Enterprises and Indian Paintbrush, and will be released on November 25, 2009 by 20th Century Fox and Fox Searchlight Pictures. It features the voices of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, and Bill Murray. It is the first animated film directed by Wes Anderson, and 20th Century Fox's first stop-motion animated film.

Development began in 2004 as collaboration between Anderson and Henry Selick (who worked with Anderson on the 2004 film The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou) under Revolution Studios. Revolution folded, Selick left to direct Coraline, and the project moved to Fox Animation Studios. Production began in London in 2007. Anderson chose to record voices outside of a studio.
