London: Actor Nicolas Cage is to reprise his role alongside Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds in DreamWorks Animation follow-up `The Croods 2`.

The 49-year-old actor will join the follow-up to the caveman caper, directed by Chris Sanders and Kirk DeMicco, reported Contactmusic.

"There`s not much to talk about yet because we`ve got a big lump of clay and we`re forming it as we speak. There will be lots of good creatures. We`ve got creatures that never got into the first movie. We`re going to take a very, very close look at those," Sanders said.

The animated hit is set in a prehistoric era and centres on a family who must adjust to the times as new inventions, such as fire, are created.

Cage voices the Croods` old-fashioned patriarch Grug, who is reluctant to accept the new innovations, while Stone lends her voice to Eep, Grug`s adventurous young daughter who tries to open her parents` minds and falls for the handsome and smart Guy (voiced by Reynolds).
