Welcome to the third installment of 12 Panel Pitch. Today’s feature is the family film, Spy Mice by Xander Stone and Keny Widjaja. Thanks to my kids’ binge watching of Wizards of Waverly Place, it’s hard for me not to hear Selena Gomez’s voice in the lead role. If I had to cast the rat, I’d go after Dustin Hoffman (in a nod to his role as Ratzo Rizzo in Midnight Cowboy)—though Bruce Willis’ weathered voice would work just fine too.
