About The Bad Guys

Nobody has ever failed so hard at trying to be good as The Bad Guys.

In the new action comedy from DreamWorks Animation, based on the New York Times best-selling book series, a crackerjack criminal crew of animal outlaws are about to attempt their most challenging con yet—becoming model citizens.

Never have there been five friends as infamous as The Bad Guys—dashing pickpocket Wolf (Academy Award® winner Sam Rockwell, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), seen-it-all safecracker Snake (Marc Maron, GLOW), chill master-of-disguise Shark (Craig Robinson, Hot Tub Time Machine franchise), short-fused "muscle" Piranha (Anthony Ramos, In the Heights) and sharp-tongued expert hacker Tarantula (Awkwafina, Crazy Rich Asians), aka "Webs."

But when, after years of countless heists and being the world's most-wanted villains, the gang is finally caught, Wolf brokers a deal (that he has no intention of keeping) to save them all from prison: The Bad Guys will go good.

Under the tutelage of their mentor Professor Marmalade (Richard Ayoade, Paddington 2), an arrogant (but adorable!) guinea pig, The Bad Guys set out to fool the world that they've been transformed. Along the way, though, Wolf begins to suspect that doing good for real may give him what he's always secretly longed for: acceptance. So when a new villain threatens the city, can Wolf persuade the rest of the gang to become … The Good Guys?

The film co-stars Zazie Beetz (Joker), Lilly Singh (Bad Moms) and Emmy winner Alex Borstein (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel).

From a screenplay by Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa) based on the blockbuster Scholastic books by Aaron Blabey, The Bad Guys is directed by Pierre Perifel (animator, the Kung Fu Panda films), making his feature-directing debut. The film is produced by Damon Ross p.g.a. (development executive Trolls, The Boss Baby, co-producer Nacho Libre) and Rebecca Huntley p.g.a. (associate producer, The Boss Baby). The executive producers are Etan Cohen, Aaron Blabey and Patrick Hughes.
