Latino actors Zoe Saldana and Diego Luna have joined the cast of the new animated film, "Book Of Life." They will be starring alongside other great actors such as Channing Tatum, Christina Applegate, Cheech Marin, Placido Domingo, and "Instructions Not Included" star Eugenio Derbez.

The animated comedy "Book Of Life" will tell the tale of Manolo, a young man who goes on a journey to fulfill family expectations while following his heart. The film takes him through three fantastic worlds where Manolo has to face his fears.

Guillermo Del Toro will be producing this film, and judging by the success of his Pan’s Labyrinth and other visual creations, we’re totally looking forward to this being a beautiful film. "Book Of Life," to be released October 2014, also features the voices of Ice Cube, Kate Del Castillo, Ron Perlman, Hector Elizondo, Ana de la Reguera, Gabriel Iglesias, Ricardo “El Mandril” Sanchez, and Danny Trejo.
