As we’ve learned from Pet Sematary and countless zombie movies, coming back from beyond the grave is never without a price. Apparently, the resurrection of Futurama is going to carry a steep cost indeed. A casting call has gone out to find replacements for everyone’s favorite Planet Express workers. It looks like everyone, from Fry, to Bender, to Zap Branigan is getting replaced.
As usual in these situations, it comes down to money. Fox released a statement saying “We love the Futurama voice performers and absolutely wanted to use them, but unfortunately, we could not meet their salary demands.” Let’s hope they can work things out and put the original voice actors back to work.
