Watch the first trailer for The Nut Job

Has anyone even heard of this film? It has secretly been developed in Canada (those sneaky Canadians!) by Open Road Films. It features Canadian-born actor Will Arnett as cranky squirrel Surly who gets booted from his tree right before winter. His only salvation is a nut store and he befriends a rat named Buddy and other ragtag rodents to help him rob the place before the snow sets in. The Nut Job is advertised as a family-friendly comedy ready to hit theaters January 17. The story appears to follow the traditional misanthrope befriend group of weirdos to save the day formula with the exception that it might be nuttier than advertised (the pun was mandatory). See the trailer at Entertainment Weekly.
