DreamWorks and Paramount get Mega with MegaMind

Metro Man was perfect for Metro City. Above and beyond sharing the same name, they were both just so… good! As we all know, where there’s good, there’s bad – so it only makes sense to think when there’s REALLY good, there must be REALLY bad. And there’s only one bad truly bad enough to fill this role: Megamind. He was raised evil, grew up evil, and made ...

A few years ago, Ben Stiller (of Madagascar fame) pitched an idea to DreamWorks’ Tom McGrath about a super villain who plays the part of a super hero. It was here that the early stages of Megamind (Oobermind, at the time) were born. The goal was to get Stiller to voice the characters opposite Robert Downey Jr. (of Iron Man fame) but with schedule conflicts, the reins were handed over to ...
