Steven Yeun and Felicia Day To Provide Voices For Chew
Posted by Joseph Lee on 04.22.2014

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead and Felicia Day (The Guild) will provide the voices for Chew, an animated film based on the series from Image Comics. Jeff Krelitz (Torchwood: Web of Lies, Peter Panzerfaust) will direct from a script by Chew co-creator John Layman. Krelitz will produce with David Boxenbaum through Heavy Metal. This will be the company's first animated film.

The series follows a detective that is a cibopath, who gets psychic impressions from what he eats. It's set in a world where bird meats are illegal after a bird flu killed millions of Americans. The trade paperback collections have landed on the New York Times best-seller charts and the series has won two Eisner awards for best new series and best continuing series, along with two Harvey Awards.

Yeun will voice detective Tony Chu. Day will voice his love interest, food critic Amelia Mintz, a "saboscrivner". She can write about food in enough detail that the reader feels like they are tasting it.

Chew will be executive produced by Scott Boxenbaum, Layman, and comic co-creator Rob Guillory, along with former BBC executive Dan Tischler. The producers plan to release the adaptation digitally and through various home entertainment platforms.

Both Yeun and Day are fans of the comic series. Yeun was considered a "no-brainer" to play Chu. Day called the comic "sublime" and "original" in a 2010 tweet.
