Sandra Bullock will voice the villain in Universal and Illumination’s “Despicable Me” spin-off “Minions”, according to Deadline.

Bullock, next in the comedy “The Heat” with Mellisa McCarthy, will voice “Scarlet Overkill, a stylish bad-ass super-villain who is (what else?) bent on world domination.”

This spinoff establishes that Minions have existed since the beginning of time, in service of history’s most ambitiously evil villains. Through their lovable ineptitude, Minions have managed to thwart and ultimately kill all of those bad guys. This story picks up in the 1960s, before they hench-ed for Gru. After wiping out all their masters, the Minions fall into a collective depression and three of them set out to seek a new evil master. They wind up at a villain convention, where they compete for the right to be henchmen for Scarlet Overkill, whose Audrey Hepburn-like high style appearance belies her world domination ambition and her aspirations to become the world’s first female super-villain

“Minions”, out December 19, 2014, follows “Despicable Me 2″ out July of this year.
