The film is directed by Tom McGrath and features the voices of Alec Baldwin, Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel and Lisa Kudrow.

    another classic

    Considering those previous collaborations between the director and team RCP were mostly handled by Balfe, I’m surprised they didn’t go straight to him for this.

    Once again, Zimmer’s name will be on the posters and on the soundtrack album, but we all know that the music will be mostly written by Balfe, and whoever RC ghost writer they can get.
