Al Pacino exits Despicable Me 2 and Benjamin Bratt enters as the villain
This is a bit of a surprise.
But, all is well. Benjamin Bratt has already replaced Pacino. So what was once thought as a bad deal turned out to be a quick mend. Why the exit from Pacino though? Creative differences. Really? What creative differences could they possibly have? Universal Studios and Illumination Entertainment issued this statement on the departure:
Bratt voices Manny in the CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS series. A character that doesn't say much at all in the first film but makes a great impression. While I love Pacino, I'm perfectly cool with Bratt taking his place.
