Quite the prestigious voice cast for an animated feature adaptation of the classic childrens book The Little Prince is being put together.  Heat Vision reports that James Franco, Rachel McAdams, Jeff Bridges, Marion Cotillard, Benicio Del Toro, and Paul Giamatti have all signed on to lend their voices to the pic.  For those unaware, French author Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s story centers on a pilot who crash lands in the Sahara Desert and stumbles across a young boy who claims to be a prince that has fallen to Earth from his home on an asteroid.  As the pilot works to repair his plane, the young boy tells him fantastical stories with heavy thematic resonance.

Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda) is onboard to direct the project, with Onyx Films’ Aton Soumache and Dimitri Rassam producing.  Additionally, The Wrap reports that Paramount is eyeing the prospect of distributing the animated pic and Mackenzie Foy (Twilight) is in talks to take on a voice role.
