Suri Cruise is set to voice German polar bear Knut in an animated film of his life    2008-01-03 04:42:00    

Shah has offered the zoo $5 million for the rights to Knut's touching story.
The 20-month-old, the daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, is wanted to provide the voice of the animal - who became a national icon in Germany after he was rejected by his mother at Berlin Zoo - in the adaptation, according to producer Ash R. Shah.

Shah, who works for The Animation Picture Company, said: "With his friendly character, Knut 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.

"I see the heart warming relationship between Knut and his caretaker, Thomas Doerflein at the centre of the movie. I want Suri Cruise to be the English voice of Knut."

Shah has offered the zoo $5 million for the rights to Knut's touching story.

Heiner Klos, curator of Berlin Zoo, said: "I can confirm that we received the offer and that we are giving it due consideration. When we have come to a decision, then we will handle the matter discreetly."

Suri isn't the only celebrity child to have started her acting career early.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's daughter Shiloh Jolie-Pitt was cast as the daughter of Brad's character in his film 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' when she was just ten months old.
