Credits now list Despicable Me storyboard artist Cal Brunker as the director, with writing credits going to Bob Barlen & Brunker, based on a story by Leech & Cory Edwards. Brendan Fraser, Jessica Alba, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jane Lynch, Paul Reubens and Rob Corddry provide voices. It’s scheduled to open February 14, 2013.
