April 28, 2005

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Jerry Seinfeld is going the Bee-movie route. Seinfeld has written the cartoon comedy ``Bee Movie,″ for which he will provide the key voice, and also will produce the tale for DreamWorks Animation.

The all-star voice cast also includes Renee Zellweger, Robert Duvall, Uma Thurman, Kathy Bates, Eric Idle, Oprah Winfrey, William H. Macy, Alan Arkin and Larry King.

``Bee Movie″ follows a bee just out of college who sues humanity for mass theft of his winged species’ honey. Steve Hickner (``The Prince of Egypt″) and Simon J. Smith (``Shrek 4-D″) will co-direct.

DreamWorks said Thursday it has slotted ``Bee Movie″ for release Nov. 2, 2007, following the May 18, 2007, debut of the studio’s third ``Shrek″ film.
