Stiller + Downey Jr. To Reteam For Animated Movie
BEN STILLER and his TROPIC THUNDER co-star ROBERT DOWNEY JR. are to reteam for a new animated action movie called MASTER MIND.
The project began life as a regular action film, but Stiller chose to turn it into a cartoon when he took it to the bosses at Dreamworks.
He says, "It's a script that my company Red Hour got that was written as a live action movie but we thought it would work as an animated movie so we brought it to Jeffrey Katzenberg and now we're in pre-production.
"I'm in it and Robert Downey Jr. plays an evil superhero villain. Basically it's about a bad guy who loses to the good guy that he's fighting all the time, so he has to create another good guy for him to fight."
