The Wrap reports Patricia Arquette is in talks to voice a new character in Toy Story 4. Should the deal go through, the Oscar-winning actress would join returning stars Tom Hanks and Tim Allen for what has been described as less a sequel and more a stand-alone romance between Woody and Bo Peep. Arquette, according to the trade's sources, would play "a laid-back mom who's described as a hippie," which is great because that means she should be totally chill with any toys running around her house and dating. Pixar's president Jim Morris had said earlier this year that the forthcoming fourth installment, penned by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack, will show less interaction between toys and children. Still: Don't count out moms! Especially if Arquette can channel the toy-talking version of her Medium role. Okay, probably too weird, but that may or may not happen come June 15, 2018. Good luck, Woody!
