Will Arnett provides the rich, baritone voice of a crafty squirrel who is seriously cuckoo for nuts in the aptly titled "The Nut Job," which is animator Peter Lepeniotis' feature-length adaptation of his 2005 award-winning short "Surly Squirrel."
The newest trailer for the upcoming animated caper comedy provides a bit more insight on the film's plot, which revolves around an odd mix of animal critters (voiced by the likes of Arnett, Brendan Fraser, Gabriel Iglesias, Katherine Heigl and Liam Neeson) who unite for a complicated undertaking. When Surly the squirrel (Arnett) discovers "the lost city of Nut-Lantis" -- or rather, a local food supply store that specializes in different types of nuts -- he rounds up a motley crew of fellow nut-addicts, including a feisty rat and a rambunctious pug, for an audacious break-in.
Surly (Will Arnett), a curmudgeon, independent squirrel is banished from his park and forced to survive in the city. Lucky for him, he stumbles on the one thing that may be able to save his life, and the rest of park community, as they gear up for winter -- Maury's Nut Store.
The Nut Job stars the voices of Will Arnett, Brendan Fraser, Gabriel Iglesias, Katherine Heigl, Liam Neeson, Maya Rudolph, Stephen Lang, Sarah Gadon, Jeff Dunham
