Drew Barrymore Lets Her Inner Dog Out
Other voices include Salma Hayek, Andy Garcia and George Lopez
Directed by Raja Gosnell, "South of the Border" is a live-action tale of a pampered Chihuahua (Barrymore) who accompanies her human owner (Piper Perabo) on a vacation to Mexico and accidentally gets left behind. With the help for a gang of Mexican dogs, she has to make a run for the border.
According to Hollywood Reporter, all manner of high-powered Latino actors will lower themselves to voicing other animals. Already on board are Andy Garcia, Salma Hayek, George Lopez, Cheech Marin, Paul Rodriguez, Placido Domingo, Edward James Olmos and Eddie "Piolin" Sotelo.
The trade paper says that Lopez, in particular, will voice a Chihuahua named Papi, the love interest for Barrymore's dog.
Barrymore's last vocal-only turn came last year on the big screen with "Curious George" and on the small screen in a recurring turn on "Family Guy." She was most recently seen in the poker drama "Lucky You" and the romantic comedy "Music and Lyrics."
