The Silver Surfer gets a voice

20 04 2007

Laurence Fishburne has signed on to voice the Silver Surfer for Twentieth Century Fox in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, which opens June 15. Contrary to the Internet rumors that Fishburne would take on the villainous role of Galactus, the actor will embody the hotly anticipated, sleekly CG’d metallic surfer for the summer sequel. Fishburne most recently lent his vocal talent to Warner Bros. Pictures’ TMNT as the film’s narrator and is currently voicing a character in the Dirty Harry video game. With its release sandwiched just three weeks after the third installment of Pirates of the Caribbean and three weeks before Transformers, Fantastic Four‘s success is expected to be largely dependent on the strength of the Silver Surfer character and whether it is deemed cool enough to bring the fanboys to the theater.
