Jason Lee Signs On for "Chipmunks" Movie
And just when you started to get visions of Bill Murray slumming through both "Garfield" movies, we learn that "Alvin" will be directed by Tim Hill -- the guy who helmed "Garfield: A Tale of Two Kitties." For Mr. Lee's part, the CG stuff should be old hat by now; he recently voiced the title character in the upcoming "Underdog" movie.
Production begins next month, and they'll be working from a screenplay by "Simpsons" scribe Jon Vitti. The plot will cover the origins of The Chipmunks band, all three of whom will be computer animated. And get this: It's already scheduled for a December 14th release!
