Depp will star and produce a live action feature inspired by the life of the classic children’s book author Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known to the world as Dr. Seuss. Geisel published 46 children’s books, which were often characterized by imaginative characters and rhymes. His most celebrated books include the bestselling Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the HatHow the Grinch Stole Christmas, Horton Hears a Who! and The Lorax.

This will be the second big-screen incarnation of the hero — the first being Sylvester Stallone’s 1995 outing.
