DreamWorks Animation has recruited some top-flight talent to voice characters in its latest animated adventure, Oobermind, formerly titled Master Mind. It's been announced that Will Ferrell will voice the part of Oobermind, the titular supervillain role that was going to be Robert Downey Jr.'s first foray into animation and also rumored to have been offered to Ben Stiller. Other additions to the cast include Brad Pitt as Metro Man, a champion of good and Oobermind's arch-enemy, and Jonah Hill as Titan, a new superhero created by Oobermind to replace Metro Man. The trio of actors join Tina Fey, signed on to play a Lois Lane-esque character who reports on the city's superheroes.
Produced by Lara Breay and Denise Nolan Cascino, Oobermind is being directed by Tom McGrath and is scheduled for a fall 2010 release.
