Pharrell To Score Despicable Me 2


As we already know Despicable Me 2 is already in works Part 1 grossing $56.3 for its opening first weekend, which is massive coming from an up-and-coming animation studio (Illumination, based at Universal) and a completely original film, with no books or previous movies to spring off from Pharrell revealed that he is gonna score again the movie. And while Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud are the film’s directors, it’s probably Illumination head Chris Meladandri who deserves most of the credit, for putting the studio together by recruiting all the good animators he knew, and encouraging original ideas amid the expected adaptations and remakes (those are coming down the line). “And there’s another Despicable Me.” Says Pharrell.

Primarily– and this should come as no surprise– the gears are already in motion for Despicable Me 2, which Meledandri is developing with the film’s writers Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio. They’re also planning two short films featuring The Minions, Gru’s little yellow assistants who were apparently a major part of the film’s appeal to kids. It’s not clear where we might see The Minions next– either before another Illumination film or on the DVD or somewhere else– but you can definitely count on an enhanced role for them in the sequels.
