Johnny Depp in Talks for Dr. Seuss Biopic

Posted: October 7th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Johnny Depp in Talks for Dr. Seuss BiopicSubmit Comment
Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me) and Johnny Depp's Infinitum Nihil are developing a live-action movie about the life of classic children's authoer and illustrator Dr Seuss (aka Theodor Geisel). Depp will produce and possibly star. Keith Bunin (In Treatment) has been brought on to write the script.

Geisel was born in 1904 and spent much of his childhood in Springfield, Massachusetts before going to college at Dartmouth. Throughout his early years, he drew advertising and comic strips, then political cartoons during World War II. By 1950, Geisel was publishing the books that became worldwide classics and sold more than 200 million copies. He died of throat cancer in 1991.

While Depp is known for playing characters like the Mad Hatter and Willy Wonka, producers say that the film won't become a CGI-fest like "Alice in Wonderland." Although there may be several animated elements in the movie.

I love Johnny Depp ever since he played the lead in the 1994 movie, In The Nick of time or is that the right title? But will this character fit him? Seems like his character are off based.
