Bah! It was in the Animation forum, you putz!
MIKE FLEMING wrote:"We couldn't be more impressed with the movie or with the global Universal and Illumination team that has made it a certifiable blockbuster," said Universal Pictures chairman Adam Fogelson and co-chairman Donna Langley in a joint statement. "This was a mammoth effort from every division of the company, and their work resulted in the film's brilliant success. To know that the first project from Chris' production company has blossomed into an enormous, franchise-launching enterprise is inspiring. We look forward to a long partnership with Illumination."
Said Meledandri: "In forming Illumination my goal was to produce movies that not only played to audiences of all ages but also played across all cultures. Despicable Me's achievement of this goal is a tribute to my directors Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud, writers Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul and my fellow producers Janet Healy and John Cohen. In Universal I have found truly like-minded partners whose contribution to the film and its success was nothing short of spectacular."
Meledandri, who left Fox Animation to form the family film unit at Universal, next releases Hop, the CG/live action mix that features Russell Brand as the voice of the Easter Bunny, on April 1, 2011. Right behind that is Dr. Seuss' The Lorax, the Ricky Gervais-created Flanimals, a new stop-motion version of The Addams Family with Tim Burton directing, and a sequel to Despicable Me. And there are two short films featuring The Minions, the adorable yellow henchmen to the Carell-voiced mischief maker.
James White wrote:Despicable Me 3, meanwhile, is still in a more embryonic state, though Meledandri does admit it’s easier to come up with story ideas for it. “We are in the story phase and the early part of scripting. The experience of moving from the first film to the second film was very different from my prior times developing a sequel. When we moved from Ice Age to Ice Age 2, we were really stuck; a story didn't just organically emerge. While I'm very proud of Ice Age 2, from a storytelling sense, it's a very thin story. It was almost as if there had been a completion in the first film from just a storytelling point of view, not from the audience's love of the characters, it just wasn't leading to another story.”
So you shouldn’t expect the Despicable Me films to stop any time soon. “When we feel like Gru's story is complete, we'll stop making the movies, but right now, what ends up happening is that as we explore stories, there's so much left to tell. Leaving the last film he's married, he's raising the girls, he has completed this work where all of a sudden where he was working on the side of good. But there's just a lot more that collectively, Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio and Pierre Coffin are finding is interesting to explore.”
The Minions will jabber into cinemas on June 26 next year.
