Sandra Bullock has signed on to voice Illumination Entertainment's Minions, which Universal Pictures will release on Friday, December 19, 2014.

In the spin-off of the successful Despicable Me franchise, Bullock will lead the voice cast of the human characters who encounter the unpredictably hilarious Minions, who rocketed to worldwide popularity in 2010's Despicable Me, and who will next be seen in this summer's Despicable Me 2.

Bullock will star as Scarlet Overkill in the 3D-CG comedy. In Minions, we discover that Minions have actually existed throughout history, always seeking out the most despicable master to serve. At a time before they met their current boss Gru, the Minions encountered Scarlet Overkill, a stylish and bad-ass super-villain bent on world domination.

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 for the film, and Chris Renaud serves as executive producer.
