Brad PittLondon, Oct 24 (IANS) Hollywood superstars George Clooney and Brad Pitt along with English footballer Wayne Rooney are going to give voice-overs for the three leading men in an animation film based on a children’s novel penned by Geri Halliwell.The Lavender series has been penned by former Spice girl Geri Halliwell who is also voicing for the lead character, Ugenia Lavender, in the movie, reports

“It’s a brilliant project and I hope to be really hands-on with it. I’ve already agreed to voice the character of Ugenia which makes sense as she’s pretty much based on me anyway,” said Halliwell.

She added: “When I wrote the books I tried to make them appeal to all ages - there are lots of subtle in-jokes, many based on celebrities, which adults will spot straight away and, I hope, find funny.

“For instance, Crazy Trevor, Ugenia’s friend in the series, reminds me a lot of Wayne Rooney in both looks and personality. I am really hopeful he’ll agree to voice the part. I get the impression he’d be up for doing it just for fun,” she shared.

Halliwell also said that she was desperate to have Clooney on board her film.

“I’ve not met Brad Pitt so he’s unlikely, realistically, to take part but I am desperate to get the gorgeous George on board,” she averred.
