You "Spy": Reba to co-star with Will Smith in new animated feature

ABC/Image Group LA Reba McEntire is headed back to the big screen -- sort of. She’ll voice a character in the animated Will Smith feature Spies in Disguise, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Smith plays Lance Sterling -- described as “the world’s most awesome spy” -- in the movie based on the animated short Pigeon: Impossible. So far, we don’t know the details about Reba’s character.

“So excited to join the cast of Spies In Disguise,” she tweeted. “The movie will be in theaters this Christmas.”

Rachel Brosnahan, star of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, will also be part of the cast, along with actress Rashida Jones and musician DJ Khaled.

Since “Uptown Funk” hitmaker Mark Ronson will be the film’s executive music producer, new music from Reba for the soundtrack could also be a possibility.

In addition to her vast array of work on TV, Reba first launched her career on the big screen back in 1990 in the sci-fi classic Tremors.
