Richard E. Grant, Jo Brand and Noel Fielding join Horrid Henry

Vertigo Films have announced an all-star line up for the cast of their upcoming 3D live action film Horrid Henry: The Movie.

Based on the children’s books created by Francesca Simon and illustrated by Tony Ross, Horrid Henry: The Movie, is said to focus on Henry and The Purple Hand Gang in their ever constant battle against the tyranny of adults.

It might all sound like child’s play, but with the number of famous faces now involved, this film might just be worth a watch! Richard E. Grant has been announced as part of the core cast, alongside Anjelica Huston (aka The Addams Family‘s Morticia) and comedienne Rebecca Front.

And that’s just for starters! Other include Gavin and Stacey‘s Matthew Horne, comedienne Jo Brand, Bend It Like Beckham‘s Parminder Nagra and The Mighty Boosh‘s Noel Fielding – blimey.

So grab your siblings, cousins, neighbours – anyone of a suitable age who might serve as a good excuse to go and see this film when it comes out some time next year – we (secretly) can’t wait!
