DAVID NEWMAN on-board "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel"
According to GSA, David Newman is responsible for the musical accompaniment of the 2nd installment in the Alvin and the Chipmunks saga, laughably entitled Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel.
Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel is an upcoming 2009 American live-action/CGI and sequel to the 2007 film starring Jason Lee, David Cross, Cameron Richardson, Zachary Levi and the voices of Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler, Jesse McCartney, Anna Faris, Christina Applegate and Amy Poehler.
The film features Alvin and the Chipmunks and their female counterparts, The Chipettes. It will be directed by Betty Thomas and distributed by 20th Century Fox, and produced by Regency Enterprises and Bagdasarian Productions. It was originally scheduled to be premiered on March 19, 2010, but it was moved up to a Christmas 2009 release instead. This film is rated PG for mild rude humor.
The movie will also feature performances by the winners of the third season of America's Best Dance Crew, Quest Crew. David Seville (Jason Lee) sends Alvin (Justin Long), Simon (Matthew Gray Gubler), and Theodore (Jesse McCartney) off to school, saying that it is "good for them". Little does he know, the Chipmunks feel like "Chipmunks Out of Water" on account of all the human students around. Meanwhile, Ian Hawke (David Cross) (after the loss of the Chipmunks dealt him a serious blow) searches the world for animals who can sing and dance. He happens upon Brittany (Anna Faris), Jeanette (Christina Applegate), and Eleanor (Amy Poehler), the Chipettes, and cannot wait to make them famous, and get his sworn revenge on the Chipmunks.[
