The Untitled Dr. Seuss Project is set to bring the iconic characters created by Theodor Geisel to animated life alongside the children's author, who will be played by Johnny Depp in this big screen biopic.
The movie is being described as a cross between Finding Neverland and Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, with The Cat In The Hat and The Lorax sharing screen time alongside a live-action Depp, pulling the audience inside Dr. Seuss' head to see his creative process at work.
Johnny Depp had this to say about the film.
"A lot of writers I know have a tendency to talk to themselves or talk as the character - and then talk as the other character. You know what I mean? They can have a whole dialogue with themselves. There's something interesting about bringing these characters to life and maybe even witnessing him have a relationship with them."
"This is the man who created all these incredible characters that every single one of us grew up with and loved. What was going on inside his mind? What was his life all about - all the way up to the end? How did he feel about it, how did he feel about those characters, and how did he live?"
Johnny Depp and his sister Christi Dembrowski will produce the film through their Infinitum Nihil banner alongside Illumination Entertainment, the company that brought us Dr. Seuss' the Lorax earlier this year, and that are working on a CGI reboot of Dr. Seuss' The Cat In The Hat.
It is not yet known which iconic Dr. Seuss characters will appear in the film. Johnny Depp and Christi Dembrowski are working closely with Theodor Geisel's wife Audrey Geisel in bringing this project together.
