‘TOY STORY 4’ PRODUCERS DRAWING IN ‘BOYHOOD’ ACTRESS PATRICIA ARQUETTE TO PLAY A CGI HIPPIE MOM
Patricia Arquette, who received critically praise and won a handful of awards for the 2014 Richard Linklater film “Boyhood,” will be newest name to be added to the “Toy Story 4” roster. Read On!
According to The Wrap, if the 47-year-old does come to an agreeable term with Disney and Pixar then she will be tapped to voice-act a parent with a hippie trait. A source from Disney, however, persisted of no longer divulging anymore related to it.
If this comes into completion then she will be joining Award-winning actor Tom Hanks (Woody) and comedian Tim Allen (Buzz Lightyear) for the stand-alone sequel.
The script for the fourth installment is co-written by Rashida Jones (television’s Parks and Recreation) and Will McCormack (The Sopranos). John Lasseter, who will be returning as director, will be sharing duties with “Inside Out” fame Josh Cooley.
A romantic story arc has been indicated in “Toy Story 4” with Woody ad Bo Peep embracing the spotlight. Bo Peep, who is voiced by Annie Potts, was a no-show in the third outing of the CGI animated franchise as she was part of the assembly of toys which were sold, including her flock of sheep, Wheezy the penguin and Lenny the binocular toy. Also returning as a voice-actor is Don Rickles who plays the self-righteous Mr. Potato Head. The studio also announced that they will be going for a June 15, 2018 theater release sandwiched between two monster sequels of Godzilla and Jurassic World.
Earlier in April, another actress also made an unofficial announcement of her role reprisal for “Toy Story.” Kristen Schaal (The Last Man on Earth) was excited that her Trixie the Tricerotops character is making a comeback.
“Yeah, Trixie is going to be returning… I have no details at all. They just told me I was back and I was thrilled,” Schaal revealed to Cinema Blend.
Arquette will be seen in the big screen for the drama film “The Wannabe” out on December 4, 2015.
