GKIDS, the acclaimed producer and distributor of animation for adult and family audiences, has announced the English voice cast for MFKZ, released under the name "Mutafukaz" in international territories.

MFKZ centers on young Angelino and his skull-and-flame pal Vinz, who live in a seedy tenement in an LA-inspired dystopian metropolis – a burnt-out, gang-and-cockroach-ridden, neo-urban hell. Following a scooter accident Angelino starts experiencing migraines, strange hallucinations and fits of rage-inspired superpowers, as he slowly awakens to the truth of his origins: he is half human and half Macho, a supernatural alien race that is bent on taking over the planet.

MFKZ will feature the voices of Michael Chiklis (The Shield), Giancarlo Espositio (The Usual Suspects), Jorge Gutiérrez (The Book of Life), Dascha Polanco (Joy), RZA, Vince Staples, and Danny Trejo (Machete).
