Miles Teller’s next role: taking aardvark

Whiplash star Miles Teller will voice the lead character in a new animated film about Noah’s Ark.

He will play Gilbert the aardvark in The Ark And The Aardvark.

The film tells the story of Noah’s Ark from the perspective of the animals, specifically a group of misfits lead by Teller’s character.

Oscar-nominee John Stevenson ( who’s previously worked on Kung Fu Panda as well as the upcoming Gnomeo & Juliet: Sherlock Gnomes) directs the film which is currently in production.

“Gilbert is young, spirited, sarcastic, and we couldn’t have found a more perfect artist to bring Gilbert to life in Miles,” said Stevenson. “His humourously rebellious and clever repartee are both spot-on and wonderfully entertaining, and I cannot wait to tell this story with him.”

No word yet on when we’ll get to see it.
