LOS ANGELES: Actors Sam Rockwell, Awkwafina and Anthony Ramos are set to voice star in animated movie “The Bad Guys”.

The film, which hails from DreamWorks Animation, is based on the Scholastic book series by Aaron Blabey, reported Variety.

Etan Cohen, whose screenwriting credits include “Tropic Thunder” and “Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa” is penning the script for the cartoon action movie.
