Three new actors have been cast in the upcoming animated comedy Hell and Back.
Variety reports that Rob Riggle, Brian Posehn, and Kumail Nanjiani will join Nick Swardson and T. J. Miller in the stop-motion animated feature. Tom Giana and Ross Shuman will be directing the film about two friends who have to rescue their friend when he is accidentally dragged to hell.
Riggle is set to play a 20-year-old who is moving into the real world, which is friends Augie and Remy don’t really like. Posehn is playing a character much like himself, an “aging heavy-metal fan stuck in the ’80s. Nanjiani has the role of Sal the Demon, an employee of Hell.
Riggle’s next roles are in the 3D animated version of The Lorax and the remake of 21 Jump Street. Posehn will next be seen in The Five-Year Engagement.
The project is being produced by Corey Campodonico, Eric Blyler and Alex Bulkley through their ShadowMachine banner, a company mostly known for working on Robot Chicken.
