Despicable Me's Minions Gets Their Own Spin-Off Movie

The cute, little bickering henchmen from Universal/Illumination’s Despicable Me, the Minions, will be getting their own full length feature soon, according to a recent report. Groo’s little helpers will be interacting in their new project, which will be written by Brian Lynch (Hop, Puss in Boots) and directed by Pierre Coffin (Despicable Me) and Kyle Balda (The Lorax). Both Coffin and Balda will also be responsible for The Minions’ voices.

The original Despicable Me was a box office success and a huge profit-earner for Universal, having only cost $69 million to produce yet managed to bring in $540 million worldwide, and even being turned into an Orlanda theme park ride via the Despicable Me Minion Mayhem. The pre-production on the still-untitled Minions film will begin at the same time as the production of Despicable Me 2, which still features the voices of Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, and Al Pacino.

The Despicable Me sequel is planned for July 3, 2013 while the Minions spin-off is planned for 2014.
