Cage & Reynolds Lend Their Voices to The Croods

Nicolas Cage and Ryan Reynolds will play CG cavemen in DreamWorks Animation's The Croods, a comedy that pits a prehistoric patriarch (Cage) against a forward-thinking outsider (Reynolds).

According to Variety, Cage will voice Crug, who cautiously leads his family beyond his comfort zone after an earthquake destroys their home. While attempting to navigate the dangerous and unfamiliar world, Crug butts heads with Reynolds' nomad, who charms Crug's clan -- especially his eldest daughter -- with his (relatively) modern-minded ways.

Chris Sanders (Lilo & Stitch, upcoming How to Train Your Dragon) and Kirk DeMicco (Space Chimps) wrote and are directing the film, which is scheduled to hit theaters in stereoscopic 3D on March 30, 2012.
