Noth starred in Sex in the City, Law & Order; Bolger voiced BioShock 2 game

Studio Ghibli revealed on Thursday that actors Chris Noth and Sarah Bolger are working on the English language dub of Goro Miyazaki's From Up On Poppy Hill film. Noth played opposite Sarah Jessica Parker in HBO's Sex in the City television series and films as Mr. Big. He also starred in Dick Wolf's long-running crime drama Law & Order as Detective Mike Logan, and he currently appears in the legal drama The Good Wife.

An Irish actress, Bolger is known as the voice of Eleanor Lamb in 2K Marin's BioShock 2 game, as Mallory Grace in The Spiderwick Chronicles and as Christy in the Oscar-nominated film In America.

The actors join previously announced Gillian Anderson and Academy-Award winning director and actor Ron Howard (Happy Days, American Graffiti) on the film's cast.

GKIDS will release the film in North American theaters next March, after holding a run in Los Angeles County for Academy Award qualification in the "November time frame." It also plans to release it on Blu-ray Disc and DVD. Studio Ghibli is producing the English-language version of the film, and Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall are executive producers on the English version. Academy Award-winning sound designer and director Gary Rydstrom (Titanic, Jurassic Park) is directing the English dub for the film.
