Robert Downey, Jr. Turns Evil
DreamWorks has decided to produce their own animated take on super-heroes with Master Mind. Entertainment Weekly is now reporting that Robert Downey, Jr. may lend his voice as the lead character, opposite Tina Fey.
According to IMDB, the film is a “satirical take on super-hero movies, in which a notorious villain loses his oomph after he accidentally kills his nemesis.” It will be directed by Cameron Hood and Kyle Jefferson (First Flight) from a script by newcomers Alan J. Schoolcraft and Brent Simons. Ben Stiller’s production company, Red Hour Films, will co-produce with DreamWorks. Paramount Pictures has this penciled in as a 2010 release.
Downey has previously worked on animated fare, including Richard Linklater’s A Scanner Darkly.
