Sandra Bullock plans to get her evil on in the Despicable Me spin-off, Minions, where she’ll have to make sure she doesn’t suffer the same fate as other villains who crossed paths with the cute, yellow guys.
The story of a bad guy getting in touch with his inner hero because of a group of orphans doesn’t sound either thrilling or funny but Despicable Me became a hit almost instantly, which of course prompted Hollywood to get busy with Despicable Me 2. Now, it looks like they want to squeeze even more blood from that particular stone.
While I hate blatant cash-grabs, it looks like Minions might actually have an interesting story to offer… and snagging Sandra Bullock as the lead voice character indicates that Universal is actually putting a little effort into it.
In Minions, we learn the little yellow guys have been around since the beginning of time, »
