“Will Smith and Tom Holland will star in the animated movie ‘Spies in Disguise,’ Variety has learned. The project is based on ‘Pigeon: Impossible,’ a 2009 original animated short film by Lucas Martell that followed a secret agent who nearly triggers a global conflict when a pigeon gets stuck in a government-issued nuclear briefcase. The feature-length film is a Fox Animation production, with Blue Sky Studios and Chernin Entertainment overseeing the project.

‘Spies in Disguise’ will open on January 18, 2019. Under newly minted studio chief Stacey Snider, Fox has been bolstering its animated output.”
