Animated Sci-Fi Adaption Of Charlie Chaplin’s THE KID Sets Jacob Tremblay As Star


Jacob Tremblay is set to voice the lead character in The Kid: An Animated Adventure an adaption of Charlie Chaplin’s The Kid.

The Kid: An Animated Adventure, is set in a futuristic New York City which has been flooded and split vertically into two distinct regions. Tremblay’s eponymous character is a young boy living with his mother in Uptown, a boring, artless place of overprotective safety. When he runs away seeking adventure, he winds up in the mysterious and dangerous Downtown and encounters Chaplin, a robot with a human soul. Together, the two embark on adventures to discover the secret mystery behind Chaplin, while pursued by police, the Kid’s mother, and a colorful cast of modern circus performers.

Christian Volckman (Renaissance) is directing with Rupert Wyatt (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes) on board as executive producer. Volckman and Wyatt co-wrote the script alongside journalist and author Boris Starling (Messiah).
