Seuss Forevever

This should startle nobody.

Illumination Entertainment’s Chris Meledandri, and Audrey Geisel will ... begin developing a 3D CG-animated feature based on The Cat in the Hat. Rob Lieber has just been set to write the script. Meledandri will produce and Geisel will be executive producer. ...

Meledandri has overseen Horton, The Lorax, and now The Cat in the Hat. Illumination Entertainment knows when it's on to a good thing.

Added to which, IE doesn't spend $100 million in development costs! Doesn't have a large bureaucracy! What are they thinking!?

Also they're doing the animated sequences for the Dr. Seuss biopic.

I suppose Audrey Geisel must feel so guilty about letting that abomination with Mike Myers be made , so now she's going to try to make up for it with an animated version of The Cat in the Hat.

jester says: And I wish the creators should be more involved on the adaptions of their work. If their so upset on how the movie it turned out, then why do they even bother making it. Talk about sellout.

Well, here's hoping IEs proposed adaptation of Woody Woodpecker thats in the works turns out as decent as their other features.

anon 7:57, you realize the actual creator of these works, Ted Geisel, has been dead for years, right? The stuff he was personally involved with - the TV cartoons - tended to be head-over-heels better than the recent movies.

Well I guess anything's better then that live action Mike Myers abomination.

They actually did exhume his corpse and he sat in on brainstorm sessions. I was there.

Audrey Geisel didn't wait 'til Ted's body was cold to whore out all his intellectual property. If he was alive, he'd divorce her.

It's a fact indeed! Anything made after his death just never sat right with me at all.

If we had never had that live action "Cat in the Hat" movie, we would never have enjoyed its alternate title: "Mike Myers: Asshole in Fur".
