Washington, Apr 30 (ANI): English comedian Ricky Gervais’ children book series ‘Flanimals’ is set to be converted into a 3-D animation film.

The 47-year-old actor will also lend his voice to the lead character of the film.

The four-volume series, illustrated by Rob Steen, encompasses a world inhabited by 50 species of ugly and misshapen creatures.

Gervais’ character, a pudgy, perspiring purple creature, goes on a mission to change the world.

“It will be great to play a short, fat, sweaty loser for a change. A real stretch,” Variety quoted Gervais as saying.

The script will be written by Matt Selman of “The Simpsons” fame. (ANI)
