Bardem In Talks For “Despicable” Sequel

Javier Bardem is in negotiations to voice the villain role in “Despicable Me 2” at Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment says Heat Vision.

In the first Steve Carell played a villainous mastermind who hires a trio of orphans for an evil scheme, but ultimately they melt his icy heart. The new one calls for a new villain named El Macho who has a son of his own.

This would make Bardem’s first animated feature with the film currently scheduled for July 3rd 2013.
