Johnny Depp to Produce (and Star in?) Dr. Seuss Biopic

Posted by & filed under The Daily Dose (Entertainment News).

Green eggs and… Depp?

He’s been the Mad Hatter, he’s been Edward Scissorhands, he’s been Willy Wonka. And now Johnny Depp is preparing to sink his teeth into another beloved character: children’s author Dr. Seuss.

Illumination Entertainment and Infinitum Nihil have a live-action movie about the life of Seuss, born Theodor Geisel, in the works, with Universal Pictures distributing. Johnny Depp is producing the film, and he has an option to star in it as well. Is there any doubt that he’ll do it?

Don’t forget that Depp has already portrayed another children’s writer: Peter Pan scribe J.M. Barrie, in Finding Neverland.

Oh, the places he’ll go!
