DreamWorks Animation has signed Nicolas Cage and Ryan Reynolds to play cavemen in the CG comedy 'The Croods,' a prehistoric tale about the Leader of the Hunt who's threatened by a younger prehistoric genius who comes up with revolutionary new inventions ... like fire.

According to a report in Variety, Cage, who lent his voice to last year's 'Astro Boy,' will star as prehistoric family patriarch Crug, whose home is destroyed in an earthquake. When he takes his family on a journey for new digs, they meet a nomad (Reynolds), whose forward-thinking ways enthralls the clan -- especially Crug's eldest daughter.
