The Penguins

The Penguins of Madagascar will be back in 2015, and they will have Benedict Cumberbatch and John Malkovich to contend with. Both actors are in high demand these days and the excitement is even better after sources say who they will play. Cumberbatch will voice a high-ranking animal CIA agent that’s after Malkovich, who will be a “charming villian.”

As for how the Penguins will play into this plot must mean they will leave their merry zoo life and might be globe-trotting in a high paced spy action thriller.

Expected to be back will be Tom McGrath as the voice of Skipper, Chris Miller as Kowalski, John DiMaggio as Rico and Christopher Knights as Private.

To helm the movie will be director Simon J. Smith (“Bee Movie”) interpreting the script by Michael Colton and John Aboud. Lara Breay (“Megamind”) is producing, while executive producers include Mireille Soria, Tom McGrath and Eric Darnell, all of whom are responsible for the original “Madagascar” trilogy.
