Suri Cruise to Voice Knut, The Polar Bear?

Scientology spokesbaby Suri Cruise may voice Knut, the polar bear at the Berlin Zoo, in a feature film!

Suri, 20 months, visited Knut with mom Katie Holmes and now producer Ash R. Shah and his firm, The Animation Picture Company, which brought us the movie version of Garfield, offered the Zoo Berlin $5 million for the rights to Knut‘s story.

According to People, Shah said, “I see the heartwarming relationship between Knut and his caretaker, Thomas Doerflein at the center of the movie … Suri [Cruise] could speak the English voice of Knut.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Suri lending her voice talents to an animated version of Knut?

  • LOL

    SHE MAY VISIT THE ZOO BUT IT DOESN”T MEAN SHE WOULD BE THE VOICE OF KNUT…STOP MAKING SUCH AN IDIOT STORY,JARED

  • emily santiago

    she always looks sad, except for one smile at the birdie, why don’t her mother KH & TC (relationship not known) stop exploiting this child, she’s going to be so messed up.

  • Paula

    I see this kid being one of the troubled kid stars in the future if they start pushing this stuff on her…let alone rebel against father’s beliefs.

  • Helena

    Well we’ve obviously never heard her speak, so we don’t know.

  • emily santiago

    I bet she’ll wind up with blue hair like her sister, even if she doesn’t know her sister, God help these children subjected to these parents/nut cases.

  • African Girl

    Knut: Coming to Theaters and Voiced by Suri Cruise?
    WEDNESDAY JANUARY 02, 2008 09:40 AM EST

    By Karen Nickel Anhalt

    Everybody loves Knut, the polar bear at the Berlin Zoo, who turned one in December. Katie Holmes visited him with daughter Suri, Annie Leibovitz photographed him for the cover of Vanity Fair and a children’s book turned him into a literary hero (Knut: How One Little Polar Bear Captivated the World.

    So it’s no surprise that Hollywood is now interested in turning Knut’s life into an animated feature – starring one of his famous visitors. According to German newspaper B.Z., producer Ash R. Shah and his firm, The Animation Picture Company, which brought us the movie version of Garfield, offered the Zoo Berlin $5 million for the rights to Knut’s story.

    “With his friendly character, he’s serves as an ambassador for the Earth’s problems – climate change and the melting polar ice caps. A movie about Knut would affect people all over the world,” Shah told the paper.

    Heiner Klös, curator at the Zoo Berlin told PEOPLE that the request was received but he didn’t like that the press was already involved. “I can confirm that we received the offer and that we are giving it due consideration,” he said. “When we have come to a decision, then we will handle the matter discreetly.”

    Shah added of his plans, “I see the heartwarming relationship between Knut and his caretaker, Thomas Doerflein at the center of the movie … Suri [Cruise] could speak the English voice of Knut.”

    Knut has been raised by Doerflein at the zoo since his mother rejected him at birth on Dec. 3, 2006. And no, Shah hasn’t heard from Suri’s agent yet.

    well, suri’s voice has not been heard, so we really don’t know if she can make a full sentence yet . but most 20 month olds can make sentences, surprisingly . i doubt she is actually voicing knut though . a visit to the zoo does not mean anything .

  • hmmm…..

    they need to take the kid off the bottle. she is almost 2 its time for her to be acting like a little kid and not still be treated like a baby. Also they would be idiots to put the kid into show business at this age.

  • http://justjared Lips,tits,butt,car, shoes, man

    Can she even talk? besides saying mama and daddy.

  • http://justjared Lips,tits,butt,car, shoes, man

    They should get Z.

  • http://justjared Lips,tits,butt,car, shoes, man

    AWW. She’s not ugle, she’s a baby, thats why her mouth is like that when she’s drinking or eating anything!!

  • http://justjared Lips,tits,butt,car, shoes, man

    *ugly*

  • http://www.arto.dk christine

    I think it would be very cute if she would do the voice… and Knut is so cute.. and so are suri,

  • ohmy

    ^ WTH stop spouting nonsense. Most children her age are still on the bottle.

  • any

  • drida

    they can get an ordinary baby to do that role! suri deserves better

  • radient

    im sure she can talk but really she’s not even 2

  • rkk

    They see the Cruises on every tabloid on earth, so they probably would love to capitalize on that, but this rings false nonetheless.

    Suri is cute, has eyes like mom. But speaking in the this film; bunch of crapola!!! She’s too young!!!

  • TO #26

    A person really has to be severly mentally r*tarded to attack a child either verbally or physically.

    I hope to god you are not allowed to be in contact with defenseless children such that you can sexually molest and physically/mentally abuse them. Which your type always does.

  • Helena

    #26, go jump off a bridge or something, you shallow person!

  • Badonkadonk

    sorry, but Tom is selling her out

  • outer space

    why not she speaks to aliens..yeah hor.e her out tommiegurl and robomom…where are the other kidssssssssssssssssssss

  • Kimbo

    I love Suri. She’s so cute. She’s already in the public eye just by virtue of the fact that she has famous parents, so why not capitalize on it? The paps make money of her, why shouldn’t her parents? It’s a sad reality, but it’s reality nonetheless. And, if the movie really is about some of the problems facing our Earth, it’s not like she would be exploited or something. She would be repeating some lines for what many people believe to be a good cause.

  • psc

    People!!!!Tom and Katie are not even aware of this gossip,i’m pretty sure.But really,any news and fotos of suri makes me smile!!!
