Incredibles 2 is shaping up to be quite the production. Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, and Samuel L. Jackson will be coming back for returning roles on the Disney/Pixar 2004 original. And on Monday, Deadline announced Sophia Bush, Isabella Rosselini, and Jonathan Banks signing on to the sequel. There’s also the fact that Bob Odenkirk and Catherine Keener have also signed on to the project. And you know what that means—the (ahem) chemistry is going to be strong. What else would you expect when Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul stars get together? I’m talking about Odenkirk (Saul Goodman/Jimmy McGill) and Banks (Mike Ehrmantraut), of course.
Granted, the plot of the sequel is unlikely to involve making meth. But we do have some other details. As Deadline reports, Banks will be playing Rick Dicker, the head of a Super Relocation Program, who helps the Parr family keep their Super identities under wrap. Bush is set to be the voice of Voyd, a “‘wannabe’ Super” whose superpower is the ability to create voids to make objects around her appear and disappear, and shift in space. And Rosselini plays a foreign ambassador who supports Supers and advocates for their legalization.
Incredibles 2 will be directed by Brad Bird, who helmed the original. The film is being produced by John Walker and Nicole Grindle. If you're hungry for even more info, Pixar tweeted some sketches of the main characters this morning.
