After months of rumors (the best of which involved Ray Romano and, I believe, Brad Pitt, which appeared briefly on the movie's wikipedia page), Coming Soon has managed to track down
the official cast for Pixar's next film, Ratatouille
. For those of you who missed the wonderful teaser
, the movie is about Remy, a Parisian rat who, quite reasonably, dreams of being a great chef. What with him being a rat and everything, his foodie impulses are not welcomed by his family, particularly when he uproots the lot of them and moves them to Paris, where they take up residence in "a Parisian restaurant made famous by an eccentric French chef."
It has now been confirmed that Remy will be voiced by Patton Oswalt
, and the chef by Brad Garrett
(look, it's a fiesta of actors from sitcoms
built around comedians
!). Also appearing in as-yet unrevealed roles will be Brian Dennehy
, Janeane Garofalo
, Ian Holm
and Pixar good luck charm, John Ratzenberger
The film, which is being directed by Brad Bird
and will inevitably be perfect, is due out in June of 2007.
