Bryan Cranston, Ben McKenzie, Eliza Dushku, and Katee Sackhoff will provide voice work to Warner Premiere’s upcoming animated adaptation of Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s acclaimed graphic novel Batman: Year One. Heat Vision reports that Cranston will voice a young liutenant James Gordon, while McKenzie is Wayne/Batman. Dushku will provide the voice for Catwoman, and Sackhoff is Gordon’s love interest, Detective Sarah Essen. The PG-13 feature is set to stick fairly close to the comic with executive producer Bruce Timm revealing, “It a pretty straight forward literal retelling. Mazzucchelli’s artwork is beautifully composed and we were able to refer to the comic for about 80 percent of the camera setups.”

Here’s the synopsis for Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s Batman: Year One:
A young Bruce Wayne has spent his adolescence and early adulthood, traveling the world so he could hone his body and mind into the perfect fighting and investigative machine. But now as he returns to Gotham City, he must find a way to focus his passion and bring justice to his city. Retracing Batman’s first attempts to fight injustice as a costumed vigilante, we watch as he chooses a guise of a giant bat, creates an early bond with a young Lieutenant James Gordon, inadvertently plays a role in the birth of Catwoman, and helps to bring down a corrupt political system that infests Gotham.
