DreamWorks Animation is setting up a superhero satire titled "Master Mind" with Ben Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld producing through their Red Hour Films.
Barely came up with new project of "Crood Awakening", DreamWorks Animation has quickly set up another to be developed under its banner.
The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the studio is working its way to develop a superhero satire feature entitled "Master Mind" following its successful attempt to purchase the project's script from scribes Alan Schoolcraft and Brent Simons.
Set to be directed by duo Cameron Hood and Kyle Jefferson, the picture focuses on a super-villain who loses his joie de vivre after accidentally killing his archenemy, Uberman. It will be the directorial debut of both men, who are known as DreamWorks Animation veterans previously working on such films as "The Prince of Egypt" and "Shrek."
Assuming the producers' seats are Ben Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld who will produce via their Red Hour Films. The flick therefore marks Stiller's first collaboration with DreamWorks Animation in a production capacity since the funnyman was noted to be involved in voice-acting matters before, filling the voice of Alex the lion in both "Madagascar" and its sequel, "Madagascar: The Crate Escape."
