Legendary thesp will ape his animated histrionics, this time voicing a villain.
While one could argue that Al Pacino has played animated characters in the past (Scarface, The Devil’s Advocate), the Academy Award winner has never lent his voice to animation. That will all change, as Pacino will voice the villain in Despicable Me 2 – the sequel to the highly popular 2010 hit film, which grossed $543 million worldwide.
What type of villain Pacino’s character will be is still under wraps, but he’ll definitely be a thorn in the side of Gru (once again voiced by Steve Carell).
Universal is targeting a July 3, 2013 release.
