Woody Harrelson and Owen Wilson are officially a couple of turkeys. Relativity Media and Reel FX have announced the two will lend their voices to the animated comedy Turkeys set for a 2014 release. Relativity and Reel FX are co-financing and producing the film which will have Horton Hears a Who!'s Jimmy Hayward at the helm.
David I. Stern (Open Season 2) and John Strauss (There's Something About Mary) wrote the screenplay with Craig Mazin (The Hangover 2) handling a rewrite. All three are producing along with Scott Mosier.
The official synopsis: "Turkeys is an irreverent, hilarious, adventurous buddy comedy where two turkeys from opposite sides of the tracks must put aside their differences and team up to travel back in time to change the course of history - and get turkey off the menu for good."
