Despicable Me ‘s Minions Targeted For Feature Film


Although the Minions will be joining Gru on the big screen next year in Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me 2, Deadline reports that a solo Minions feature is being planned for a 2014 release.

Brian Lynch, who scripted Illumination and Universal’s Hop, has already drafted the screenplay and Kyle Balda (The Lorax) and Pierre Coffin (Despicable Me) are attached to co-direct.

Despicable Me 2, meanwhile, will hit theaters on July 3, 2013 and will feature the voices of Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Miranda Cosgrove, Russell Brand and Al Pacino.
