Dream­Works Ani­ma­tion announced today that Will Fer­rell, Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill will star along­side Tina Fey in its upcom­ing the­atri­cal release, Oober­mind (writ­ten by Alan J. School­craft and Brent Simons), which is sched­uled to be released on Novem­ber 5, next year. Will Fer­rell assumes the lead­ing role of Oober­mind, replac­ing Robert Downey, Jr., who has left the pro­duc­tion due to sched­ul­ing conflicts.

When super vil­lain Oober­mind (Will Fer­rell) defeats his archri­val Metro Man (Brad Pitt), the world should be his oys­ter. But instead, Oober­mind falls into total despair. It turns out that life with­out a rival is life with­out a point for him. So, he cre­ates a new super­hero rival, Titan (Jonah Hill). Unfor­tu­nately, the new hero wants to be a super vil­lain, too. Caught in the mid­dle, star reporter Rox­anne Ritchi (Tina Fey) asks the tough ques­tions: Who can we turn to? Who has what it takes to stand up to this men­ace? Who will defend the inno­cent? Oober­mind! That’s who!
