Pity Seth Green. His mama is going to be kidnapped and taken to Mars, in a new motion-capture Disney picture, based on the book Mars Needs Moms.

Seth will be portraying young Milo, whose mother is kidnapped and taken to Mars — and it's up to him to get her back, using all the crazy Robot Chicken ninja skills at his disposal.

The aliens' overlord will be Mindy Sterling, whom Seth worked with on Austin Powers (as the crazed yelly German). and Joan Cusack will be playing Milo's Mama.

The film, adapted from the childrens' book beautifully illustrated by by Berkeley Breathed, is being directed by Simon Wells.
