Anne Hathaway Joins Neil Patrick Harris In ‘Rio’

No, we’re not referring to a Brazilian vacation getaway, rather the twosome have been cast in an animated feature together. Anne Hathaway and Neil Patrick Harris are to lend their voices to Rio, from the same people who brought the world the wildly successful, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.

According to a report, the story “follows the adventures of a nerdy macaw who lights out from his small-town Minnesota cage for the exotic Summer Olympic city of Rio de Janeiro” and will be filmed in 3-D animation. The release date for the film is April 8, 2011.

Let’s hope the two have an opportunity to do some singing, since they both seem to be pretty musically-inclined.
