eugenioForget Mickey…Speedy Gonzalez is the mouse that everyone in Hollywood is talking about!

The buzz is that there is an animated movie in the works about the fastest mouse in all of Mexico.

And get this…Eugenio Derbez could be voicing the mouse.

“In Mexico we grew up watching Speedy Gonzales,” Derbez told “Deadline”. “He was like a superhero to us, or maybe more like a revolutionario like Simon Bolivar or Pacho Villa. He watched out for the little people but with a lot of bravado and a weakness for the ladies. I’m really excited to be bringing this character to the big screen. And besides being Mexican— my full name is Eugenio Derbez Gonzalez and I have big ears. The casting couldn’t be better.”

Andale! Andale!
