Jamie Foxx is taking his first steps into the world of animation - the Oscar-winner has been given the go ahead for his latest project WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE.
The Ray star pitched the idea for the film to bosses at 20th Century Fox Animation, and they have given the actor permission to move forward with the production.
The movie will mark Foxx's first role in an animated picture, and he will also be producing and writing the score for the film.
Malcolm Spellman, who is writing the script, tells Variety.com, "I'm psyched about Welcome to the Jungle because it's specifically built to utilise Jamie's talent with voices and as a musician."
Details on the plot have yet to be released.
