Russell Brand is the Easter Bunny. Don’t worry, he won’t be on the loose during Easter, but he will be voicing the part of the Easter Bunny in a new CG/live-action film titled I Hop.

According to Empire Online, Tim Hill, the same guy that directed Alvin and the Chipmunks, will be at the helm of I Hop. The film is about an out-of-work slacker who accidentally runs over the Easter Bunny and as his punishment he has to work as the Bunny’s replacement and partner to save Easter. Yes, it’s a stupid, unoriginal plot, but Hill has been able to mesh CG and live-action together in the past successfully, so perhaps he will again this time.

The film doesn’t have a release date yet, but we believe that it will around march.

What do you think of Brand being the Easter Bunny?
