While a Woody Harrelson-Owen Wilson on screen team-up has great comedic potential, we’ll have to settle for their voices instead. EW reports that the two will play animated turkeys, Reggie and Brock, who discover a time machine and travel back to the first Thanksgiving to take themselves off the menu. I sympathize with the characrters’ plight, but I don’t agree with their mission because turkeys are delicious.
Luke Wilson will also voice one of the turkeys, which will be a nice change of pace from me feeling sorry for him when I see his AT&T commercials.
Peter Farrelly of the Farrelly Brothers (There’s Something About Mary) will executive produce and directed by Ash Brannon (Surf’s Up and co-director of Toy Story 2).
