Seth Rogen lends voice to Boo U

Seth Rogan has signed on to voice the lead character in DreamWorks' new animation Boo U .

The story centres on a ghost who is bad at his job and must return to the ghost school to learn how to become a better spook.

Former Simpsons and King of the Hill writer Jon Vitti is currently working on the script with Tony Leondis set to direct.

Leondis' last animated offerings were Igor and Lilo & Stitch 2 .

Hopefully Rogan's presence will left this to higher climes, though the pair will have to work hard to stop this being anything but a poor retread of Monsters Inc.

Boo U is set for a Summer 2012 release.
