LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Sean Astin will give voice to a cat raised as a dog in Imagi Services' upcoming computer-animated movie "Cat Tale."

Elisha Cuthbert, Stanley Tucci and Alan Cumming round out the feline cast.

Astin will play Rover, a cat who grows up in Dogtown and returns to Catopolis to find his roots. Cuthbert will voice Cleo, Rover's love interest, who also is sought after by Simon, a ruthless cat-box-litter exec (Tucci). Cumming is set to play Newton, Rover's guide and friend in Catopolis.

Supporting characters will be voiced by Fred Willard, Catherine O'Hara, Billy Idol, Rip Torn and Chazz Palminteri, among others.

Flix Ip will direct "Cat Tale," working from a screenplay by Aaron Mendelsohn ("Air Bud") and Kevin Munroe ("Donner").

Production on the animated project is expected to be completed by next year.
