Game of Throne’s Lena Headey to star in Grimm Fairy Tales Animated Series
Game of Throne‘s Lena Headey is set to voice Sela Mathers, the lead character in the Grimm Fairy Tales Animated Series. It’ll be based on Zenescope’s comic book series of the same name. You may have seen Headey as Queen Gorgo in 300, Sarah Connor in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and Guinevere in Merlin.
Of course, this project won’t happen until the Kickstarter pledge reaches $175,000. As of this time, they are closer to $60,000. So visit their Kickstarter page and make a pledge before the May 1st, 2012, deadline. That’s cutting it close.
Last week Briana Evigan (Step Up 2, Sorority Girls) joined the project. Jon Schnepp (The Venture Bros., Metalocalypse) will be directing the project with Titmouse Animation Studio.
“We set the goal of the animated series at 175K because we wanted to give our fans and those supporting the Kickstarter a high-quality product.” Explains Zenescope Marketing Manager Stephen Haberman “We’re hiring Titmouse, one of the premiere animation studios in the world, to handle the animation. We have Jon Shnepp directing and now with Lena and Briana joining the project, we’re able to take it to another level.”
“Crowd-funding can be a powerful tool. We’ve seen some really projects find funding through Kickstarter and it’s a game changer.” Said Zenescope’s Editor-in-Chief, Ralph Tedesco “It gives us a chance to make this series the way our fans want to see it be made. We’re about a third of the way there with funding and hopefully now with the all of the talent we’ve brought on board fans will see that this can be an amazing project to back.”
