Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment are planning on animating The Cat In The Hat, the classic Dr. Suess story based on the tall, anthropomorphic, mischievous cat, wearing a tall, red and white-striped hat and a red bow tie.
The books follow the Cat, that brings a cheerful, exotic and exuberant form of chaos to a household of two young kids, brother and sister, one rainy day while their mother leaves them unattended. The script will be written by Rob Lieber.
Christopher Meledandri and Audrey Geisel are producing the 3D CG-animated project.
The is project is still in early development.
