Steve Carell will lend his voice to the title character in Despicable Me, a 3-D, CGI-animated family film for Universal. The film already has a projected release year of 2010 and a slew of impressive actors will lend their voices to the film, among them Will Arnett, Julie Andrews, Kristen Wiig, and Jason Segel.
The title character, as voiced by Carell, will be an unlikable man named Groo who plots to steal the moon. He is supported by his evil mother, voiced by Andrews. However, Groo ends up looking after a trio of orphaned girls who get in his way and won't leave his life. Chris Renaud and Pierre Coffin will direct, with Christopher Melendandri producing via the Illumination Entertainment banner. Melendandri says that he was inspired to make the film after realizing his young sons always loved the villains a little bit more than the heroes in family films.
