EXCLUSIVE: The in-demand Sarah Snook has boarded Oscar-winning Australian director Adam Elliot’s upcoming stop-motion drama Memoir of a Snail as the lead voice and narrator.

Snook will voice the feature animation’s protagonist Grace Puddle, a lonely misfit who hoards ornamental snails and is addicted to romance novels.

Paris-based sales and production company Charades and London-based production and financing studio Anton, which announced last Cannes that they were co-selling the movie, have released a fresh image for the production in the lead up to the EFM where they will show a new promo.

News of Snook’s casting comes as the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning Succession star sets forth on a 14-week run of Oscar Wilde’s The Picture Of Dorian Gray at London’s Theatre Royal in which she plays all 26 characters.

Memoir of a Snail marks Snook’s first lead voice role in a feature animation.

The stop-motion work is Elliot’s second feature after the award-winning animation Mary And Max. The director previously won an Oscar for his 2004 short Harvey Krumpet.

Set in 1970’s Australia, it follows Grace Puddle’s coming of age journey when her family unit is ripped apart and she’s separated from her twin brother.

She finds herself in a spiral of anxiety and depression until her life is filled with colour and hope again when she strikes up an enduring friendship with an elderly eccentric woman called Pinky.

Further previously announced members of the international voice cast include Jacki Weaver (Yellowstone), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Elvis), Dominique Pinon (Cassandre, Bigbug), Magda Szubanski (Kath & KimHappy Feet), and Eric Bana (The Dry).

The animated feature is produced by Arenamedia, with Liz Kearney (Paper Planes) as producer, and Robert Connolly (The Dry) and Robert Patterson as Executive Producers.

The film is currently in post-production after shooting in Melbourne, Australia for an expected 2024 release. Madman Entertainment will handle distribution in Australia and New Zealand.

Memoir of a Snail received major production investment from Screen Australia in association with Anton and Charades. It was developed and produced in association with VicScreen and financed with support from Soundfirm, Mind the Gap Finance, the Melbourne International Film Festival Premiere Fund (MIFF) and private equity.
