Bryan Adams to Voice “Jock” in Jock of the Bushveld Animated Film

Radio 702 Screengrab

Jock of the BushveldYes, that’s right – you heard it correctly yesterday on Radio 702 and Cape Talk: Canadian singer-songwriter Bryan “Life is a Highway” Adams is going to be performing the voice of “Jock”, the hero of Percy Fitzpatrick’s Jock of the Bushveld, in the animated film being made of the book.

Further details of Adams’ involvement are hard to find, but 702′s Nadia Neophytou’s original tweet breaking the news -

Bryan Adams is the voice of Jock in the upcoming 3D animated film Jock of the Bushveldless than a minute ago via Dabr

- was later confirmed on the David O’Sullivan show, as shown in the screengrab at the top of this post.

Looking forward to hearing Bryan’s “Jock”! – but also sort of hoping that the pooch doesn’t acquire a yen to sing its story all the way through…

More details as they develop!
