Will Ferrell and Jonah Hill

The Bad News is Robert Downey Jr has left the Ben Stiller-produced animated film Oobermind. The Good News is he’s being replaced by Will Ferrell, and the voiceover cast will also feature Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill, joining the previously announced Tina Fey and (possibly?) Stiller himself.

Ferrell will voice the title character, a supervillain unsatisfied with life after defeating his superhero rival Metro Man (voiced by Pitt), leading him to create a new hero, Titan (played by Hill), whom would also prefer to be a supervillain.¬† Fey will voice a reporter following the case. We previously speculated whether Stiller would be voicing Metro Man, but the current announcement in Variety doesn’t speculate if he’s still providing any voiceover work.
