Universal’s Minions Movie Gets a Release Date
Minion fans rejoice! The cute yellow little henchmen from Despicable Me will finally get their own spin-off movie on December 19, 2014. They will finally have an entire full length feature to themselves, to spend as they wish. Most likely, the minions will use all of their screen time to slapfight and bicker amongst themselves.
The Minions’ Spin-off Movie will be produced by Illumination head Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, and will be co-directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, with script writing duties courtesy of Brian Lynch (Puss in Boots, Hop). The pic will be executive produced by Chris Renaud, who was the director for Despicable Me.
Fans of Gru and the Girls, who don’t care for the Minions shouldn’t despair, though. The sequel to the original film, Despicable Me 2, will be on theaters on July 3, 2013. You’ll get your Despicable Me sequel before we get our Minions spin-off.
