- DESPICABLE ME 2
Javier Bardem is now in negotiations to fire up another evil, villianous role, this time in cartoon form for Despicable Me 2.
The first film, which starred Steve Carell as scheming villain Gru, the mastermind whose cold heart is melted by three adorable orphan moppets, proved to be a huge success. So naturally, the sequel was quickly greenlit and is now in production over at CG company Illumination Entertainment.
There’s little word on the plot just yet, though we do know that Gru will this time face a brand new villain called El Macho (Bardem), who brings with him his own child, Machito. The Heat Vision blog reports that many of the original movie’s cast is coming back, so expect voice turns from the likes of Russell Brand, Will Arnett, Julie Andrews, Miranda Cosgrove, Kristen Wiig and more.
Despicable Me 2 is due to hit screens until October 2013
