Owen talked about this years ago -- that he was excited abotu the project etc - and then poof, the project seemed to disappear. I guess it is finally happening!
ON Edit -- I tried to link to the article but I could not get to the site, http://www.wilson-brothers.com
. Does anyone know what is happening with that?
Anyhoo I did find an undated article, same text as I remember, from a couple of years ago:
<!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>Owen Wilson reveals animated movie detail</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END-->
There’s finally been a confirmation as to an important detail about Pixar’s final Disney film, Cars. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I could never find out if the talking cars could drive themselves or if they had human drivers. Finally, voice actor Owen Wilson, confirmed there are no humans. “It’s a world of cars. That’s the hook.”
Wilson’s specific character is “a race car that is kind of cocky and is going to learn his lesson.” Expect the character to sound familiar. “It’s a voice kind of similar to my own,” Wilson said.
The film, aimed for a holiday 2005 release, is in the middle of production and Wilson has not even seen final animation yet. “Just stuff that they showed me when I went in, but it won’t be the final stuff. They take forever to do, so it's been a couple years now and I think it’ll be a least two more. <p><!--EZCODE HR START--><hr /><!--EZCODE HR END--> "There’s never any time to have too much self-doubt" - Wes Anderson </p>Edited by: chelseagirl at: 7/4/05 8:42 am
