Illumination Plans CG Cat in the Hat


Illumination Plans CG Cat in the Hat

According to a recent Deadline.com report, Universal’s Illumination Entertainment is currently developing a new 3D CG animated feature based on Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat. Rob Lieber will write the script, with Chris Meledandri (Illumination’s President) and Audrey Giesel (Seuss’ widow) at the helm as executive producers.

A new Dr. Seuss movie is not considered a big surprise in the industry, considering that the Lorax broke box office records recently. But the choice of The Cat in the Hat is a bit odd, since a live action Cat in the Hat feature with Mike Myers flopped badly in 2003.

The Deadline report states that the studio now believes that the Seuss property is best suited to animation, in spite of a successful live-action adaptation of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The site also reports that Universal is currently working on a Dr. Seuss Biopic that mixes animation with live-action, with Johnny Depp being considered for the lead role.
