If you’re reading this because the title confused you too, don’t worry… get in line. Idris Elba, Andy Serkis, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Samson Kayo will all star in the upcoming animated feature film ‘Mouse Guard’, which has been described by many as ‘Game of Thrones’ with mice.
Based on the comics and graphic novel by David Petersen, Mouse Guard is a set in a medieval world and tells of an order of mice who are the sworn protectors of their realm. Enemies range from predators such as foxes and eagles to other rodents. The series from Archaia/Boom! is a two-time Eisner Award winner. Kayo will play a member of the guard named Saxson, who is described as being a lush and a scalawag and who has a fiery temperament and an inclination for melodrama.
The film will begin production next month using motion capture and visual effects. The film has no release date as of yet but the main cast has been filled out so that means it is moving along nicely.
