Last year, we reported that Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment were developing a Despicable Me spinoff for the lovable minions. The spinoff, appropriately titled “Minions“, now has a voice for its lead villain. According to Deadline, Sandra Bullock will provide the voice of “Scarlet Overkill, a stylish bad-ass super-villain who is (what else?), bent on world domination.” The story shows the minions have been around forever, and unintentionally thwarted and destroyed their masters’ plans through adorable incompetence. Set in the 1960s, Minions has three of the creatures going to a villain convention to find a new master, and compete to get the job from Overkill, who aspires to be the world’s first female supervillain. It sounds like a fun role for Bullock, and I’m eager to see what she does with it.
Minions is due out in 3D on December 19, 2014. The minions will next be seen in Despicable Me 2, which arrives in 3D on July 3rd. Bullock will next be seen in Paul Feig‘s R-rated action-comedy The Heat, which opens June 28th.
