Dr. Seuss’s The Grinch to be Rebooted by Universal


the grinch to be rebooted

Universal Studios and its animation division, Illumination Entertainment, are hoping that movie goers have already recovered from the critically panned big screen adaptation of Dr. Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas (which starred Jim Carrey as the Grinch). The studios are hoping that fans are ready to see a new take on the story, using CG animation this time around.

The new Grinch movie will be directed by Peter Candeland, with Illumination CEO Chris Meledandri producing and Audrey Geisel, Dr. Seuss’ (Theodor Geisel) widow serving as executive producer. This will be the third Seussian outing for Meledandri—the studio head exec produced 2008’s Horton Hears A Who! for Fox and Illumination’s The Lorax for Universal last year.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas was originally written in 1957 and was adapted into a commercially and critically successful animated special by Chuck Jones in 1966. The story would not see a big screen adaptation until the much maligned 2000 live action film from Ron Howard, which starred Carrey as the villainous joy-thief.
