The Penguins of Madagascar Adds Benedict Cumberbatch and John Malkovich


A spinoff of DreamWorks Animation’s Madagascar franchise, The Penguins of Madagascar has added Benedict Cumberbatch and John Malkovich to its voice cast.

Cumberbatch, who starred earlier this year in Star Trek Into Darkness, will voice an animal working for the CIA who is tracking the adventure’s villain, to be voiced by Malkovich. Malkovich is in theaters now as part of the ensemble of RED 2.

To be directed by Simon J. Smith with a script by Michael Colton and John Aboud, The Penguins of Madagascar hits theaters March 27, 2015.
