Sewer rats

As someone who once played a singing, dancing sewer rat on the London stage, I was delighted to see the following news... especially if the movie turns out to be any good. It's from Aardman, so the odds are in its favor.

From http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/3605904.stm

Lord of the Rings stars Ian McKellen and Andy Serkis are to join the cast of an animated film about a sewer rat.

The movie Flushed Away features a pampered pet rat who accidentally gets swept into London's sewers.

Sir Ian and Serkis, who worked together as Gandalf and Gollum in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, will voice a villainous frog and his sidekick.

The film is the latest project from Aardman Animation, the UK firm behind Chicken Run and Wallace And Gromit.
