Sir Christopher voices "The Fall of the House of Usher"

A couple of years ago, Sir Christopher recorded all the voices for an animated version of the "Fall of the House of Usher". Now, Belgium's The Big Farm will co-produce it as part of Raul Garcia's 3D "Extraordinary Tales".

Liege's Digital Graphics, a European coloring-compositing studio, will also provide animation on the toon anthology. This completes the co-production structure for one of Europe's most-awaited for animated, literary adaptation. Footage from The House of Usher, will be shown at this week's 13th Cartoon movie in Lyon.

This is a passion project for Raul Garcia, who is also a personal friend. Raul is a former animator at Pixar, Disney and Dreamworks, "Extraordinary Tales" builds on his multi-award winning 2005 "The Tell-Tale Heart", which was voice by Bela Lugosi and made in black and white. (See video clip)

"Extraordinary Tales" will be ready in the summer of 2012.

It's nice to get some news about this project. I remember reading about it a couple of years ago, when Antonio Banderas production company was involved in this. Seems like ambitious project and I'm looking forward seeing it. Stories by Poe are some of my fovourites.

Beautiful!  The animation reminds of of the 2005 film "Renaissance"
