Sandra Bullock To Voice Super-Villain In 'Minions' Spinoff
Reported by Outsiders - 2013.02.11
Sandra Bullock will be playing against her roles of being sweet and nice and will play the role to the lead villain voice in Minions, the Universal Pictures/Illumination Entertainment spinoff of the Despicable Me franchise. Bullock will voice Scarlet Overkill, a stylish bad-ass super-villain who is bent on world domination. The 3D CG animated comedy has been set for release December 19, 2014.
This story picks up in the 1960s, before the adorable yellow henchmen, Minions hench-ed for Gru. After all their masters are wiped out, the Minions fall into a collective depression and three of them set out to seek a new evil master. They wind up at a villain convention, where they compete for the right to be henchmen for Scarlet Overkill, whose Audrey Hepburn-like high style appearance belies her world domination ambition and her aspirations to become the world’s first female super-villain.
Minions will be produced by Illumination’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, and it will be directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda. Brian Lynch has written the screenplay, and Chris Renaud is executive producer.
