Music Composer Comes Aboard

The Reporter tells us:

... Timbaland is in final talks to serve as executive music producer on CG-animated feature Groove Tails.

The movie will star Jamie Foxx as a mouse forced to enter the world of competitive street dancing to pay an outstanding cheese debt.

For his role, Timbaland would guide and produce the score for the kids movie along with music marketing agency Jungle Punks, who is helping the artists expand into original music for brand synchs, television and film scores, video game soundtracks and sponsorships. ...

Groove Tails is in pre-production with no release date currently set. Cameron Hood, late of DreamWorks Animation, is the director. Jamie Foxx is one of the producers.

Timbaland is a longtime hit-maker who's produced records for Justin Timberlake, LL Cool J, Xzibit, Fatman Scoop, Jay Z, and Jennifer Lopez among numerous others. He might be an inspired choice to make Groove Tails work as a modern musical. Certainly he'll be fresh and different.
