About DR. SEUSS’ HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS
A newly imagined version of the enduring holiday classic will be directed by Pete Candeland and adapted from Dr. Seuss’ book by Michael LeSieur. The film will be produced by Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy and executive produced by Audrey Geisel.

And something new and potentially different. (A zazzy musical from a live-action director. And Frozen has certainly shown that animated musicals can be blockbusters ... once again.)
