‘Minions’ Filmmakers Want Chris Pratt as Their Dream Villain

Producers Chris Renaud and Chris Meledandri has revealed that they would like Chris Pratt to voice the next villain in the next movie of the franchise “Minions.” The producers would really like if Pratt could voice the next super villain. Read on.

Pratt and Robert Redford are topping the list of the producers for the next villainous voice for “Despicable Me 3.” Meledandri has expressed that he would like Redford, the 78-year-old Sundance Film Festival founder, as his dream candidate. On the other hand, producer and animator  Renaud revealed that Pratt is his dream choice.


Well, Renaud’s choice seems fair, as the “Jurassic World” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” star has already won hearts of the millions and popularly famous among all of the age groups now. On the other hand, Redford comes with a lot of experience; he has many honours in his name. Redford has narrated many popular documentaries like, “Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk,” “Charlotte’s Web,” and “Incident at Oglala.”

Steve Carell had lent his voice for the evil master Gru in the first two installations of “Despicable Me” and Sandra Bullock has voiced the villain Scarlet Overkill in the “Minions.” According to Chris Renaud, “I personally think its fun to play against type.” Renaud also added that since Pratt is such a nice guy and if he could be put as a bad guy then there can be many interesting ideas and lots of room for development of the plot.

Meledandri thinks the same and had said that they have found that the nicer the actors are, the better it is to let them voice the villains. He added, “So if we could have anybody as a villain, I’d like Robert Redford.”

“Despicable Me 3” will be coming to theatres in the summer of 2017 and will be exploring another chapter of Gru’s life.
