Sources say since it is an animated feature there shouldn’t be a problem re-recording the character with Bratt’s voice in time for the July 2 release.
Deadline Hollywood broke the news.
The creative team behind “Despicable Me” returns for the sequel, including directors Chris Renaud and Pierre Coffin, and screenwriters Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio. The previous installment, which cost just $69 million to make, grossed $540 million worldwide.
Illumination founder Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy are producing.
The WME-repped Bratt was last seen in Summit’s “Snitch.”
