Downey out, Pitt and Ferrell in for Oobermind


DreamWorks Animation’s upcoming feature Oobermind has enlisted three new superheroes, with Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill set to lend their voices to the comedy set for release in fall 2010.

Ferrell takes the place of Downey’s title character, Oobermind, a supervillain who imagines all his dastardly dreams coming true after defeating good-guy rival Metro Man (Brad Pitt), only to find life quite boring without an adversary. To fill the void, Oobermind creates a new superhero, Titan (Jonah Hill), who also wants to be bad, forcing Oobermind to switch sides.

The trio join Tina Fey (“30 Rock”), already onboard to play the reporter tasked with keeping track of the city’s confusing superhero situation.

With Oobermind it marks Brad Pitt’s first voice-acting duties since Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas. Will Ferrell previously lent his voice to Universal’s Curious George.
