Ted Danson and Vinessa Shaw have been added to the cast of Everybody Loves Whales.

Danson and Shaw join John Krasinski, Drew Barrymore, Kristen Bell and Tim Blake Nelson in the ensemble animal rescue drama set to commence shooting next month in Alaska.

Everybody Loves Whales centers a small-town news reporter (Krasinski) and a Greenpeace volunteer (Barrymore) who enlist the help of rival superpowers to save three majestic gray whales trapped under the ice of the Arctic Circle.

Ken Kwapis is attached to direct. Expect the film to be released sometime next year.
