Notorious dog lover Ellen DeGeneres, who famously broke down on her talk show while discussing the dog which she had to give up for adoption, is lending her voice to Dog Show, an animated film that will be distributed by Warner Bros. Several studios were interested in the project but Warner Bros. eventually won out.
The film's plot details have yet to be revealed, but the general story focuses on a stray dog and her crop of misfit canine friends who shake up the stuffy world of a Westminster-inspired dog show. DeGeneres will also produce the film. The last time the actress/talk show host voiced a film was 2003's Finding Nemo.
DeGeneres has also accepted the role of Mother Nature in an untitled new comedy. In the film, Mother Nature will return to earth for the first time since the planet's creation. DeGeneres joked that she always wanted to control the weather and that's why she accepted the role.
