Paramount Pictures' 'Barnyard' to Be Released in Theaters July 28
HOLLYWOOD, Calif., April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Paramount Pictures has
moved the release date for the upcoming animated comedy
"Barnyard," directed by Steve Oedekerk ("Jimmy Neutron: Boy
Genius"), to July 28, 2006.
From Steve Oedekerk and Nickelodeon Movies, two of the co-creators of
"Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius," and filmed entirely in CGI, comes
this hilarious look at what really happens in a barnyard when the farmer's
back is turned. "Barnyard" is a lighthearted tale centering
around Otis (voiced by Kevin James), a carefree party cow, who enjoys
singing, dancing and playing tricks on humans. Unlike his father Ben
(voiced by Sam Elliott), the respected patriarch of the farm, and Miles,
the wise old mule (voiced by Danny Glover), Otis is unconcerned about
keeping the animals' humanlike talents a secret. But when suddenly put in
the position of responsibility, the "udderly" irresponsible cow
finds the courage to be a leader.
Paramount Pictures presents in association with Nickelodeon Movies an O
Entertainment production, a Steve Oedekerk film, "Barnyard."
Written and directed by Steve Oedekerk, the film is produced by Steve
Oedekerk and Paul Marshal. The executive producers are Julia Pistor and
Aaron Parry. Animation production is by Omation Animation Studios. The
film is rated PG for some mild peril and rude humor.
Pictures is part of the entertainment operations of Viacom Inc., one of
the leading global entertainment content companies, with prominent and
respected brands in focused demographics across virtually all media.
