The Lorax is Coming!

30 July 2009 9:26 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

According to Variety, Universal and Illumination Entertainment recently decided to use Dr. Seuss’ 1971 tale, The Lorax, as source material for an upcoming project.  Here’s how I think the board room conversation went:

“Given the sorry state of economic affairs, why not capitalize on ol’ Doc Seuss again? Pick another book, make it an animated movie, and let’s toss in some 3D effects while we’re at it, ‘cuz the kids seem to be really eating that up these days, and we can charge an additional $6.50 for tickets and those silly glasses!  Sounds like a recipe for success to me, boys, make it happen!”

 

Somehow, the suits-that-be at Universal looked at the sweeping success of previous Seuss-based projects, and decided that the public had gone too long without a follow-up.  That’s not to say that the production quality has been poor; their digital animation is rapidly gaining on Pixar. »

Universal Bringing ‘The Lorax’ to Life

29 July 2009 2:21 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Universal Studios and Illimunation Entertainment are continuing with the Dr. Seuss feature film adaptations.  ‘The Lorax’ will be a 3D animated film much in the vein of last year’s ‘Horton Hears a Who!’  Chris Renaud, story artist for ‘Horton,’ along with ‘Horton’ screenwriters Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio will be serving as co-directors on the film.  Paul and Daurio will also be serving as screenwriters on the film.

The Lorax’ tells the “green” story of an entrepreneur who strips a forest full of its trees despite warnings from a small creature known as the Lorax.  The film is tentatively scheduled for release on March 2nd, 2012.  Coincidentally, this will be the birthday of Seuss, real name Theodor Geisel, who died in 1991.

Ted Geisel was prescient in an uncanny way when he wrote the book and explored themes of greed and how that can lead to the destruction of environment,” says producer Chris Meledandri. »

Dr. Seuss Book The Lorax to Become a 3D Animated Movie

29 July 2009 12:17 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Just in case that Horton Hears a Who! movie wasn't enough, Universal has teamed up with Illumination Entertainment to adapt another Dr. Seuss book, this time The Lorax, into a 3D CGI animated feature (just like Horton). First published back in 1971, The Lorax is narrated by a greedy entrepreneur who, despite warnings from the tree-loving Lorax, strips a forest of its stock of Truffula trees to manufacture clothing. The results are catastrophic as all the animals leave and nothing's left. Universal's feature version of this will be co-directed by three different directors: Chris Renaud (Despicable Me), Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio. "Ted Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss) was prescient in an uncanny way when he wrote the book and explored themes of greed and how that can lead to the destruction of environment," Illumination's Chris Meledandri told Variety. Meledandri was the same person who developed Horton Hears a Who! at Fox »

Dr. Seuss' Lorax takes a ride to Hollywood

29 July 2009 11:36 AM, PDT | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

Universal Pictures is in development with their fourth film based on a work of children's book author Dr. Seuss. The Lorax is the latest Seuss creation to find its way to Hollywood, with a release date of March 2, 2012 already targeted. Like Horton Hears a Who!, The Lorax film will be a CG animated feature but this time it will be presented in 3-D.

The film will be directed by Chris Renaud, Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio, from a script by Paul and Daurio. In Seuss' tale the Lorax lives in the forest protecting its trove of Truffula tress from loggers. Despite the dire warnings from the creature, a smarmy businessman tricks the Lorax and cuts down the trees, turning the forest from a home for many animals into a deserted, despoiled hunk of land. The book was written in 1971 and on the height of the original green movement. "Ted Geisel »

Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax Coming to the Big Screen

29 July 2009 9:38 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

I still have yet to see last year's CG adaptation of the Dr. Seuss story Horton Hears a Who!, but the reviews were surprisingly solid (78% on Rotten Tomatoes [1]) and it ended up being the 10th highest grossing movie of the year. It's no surprise then that another Dr. Seuss book is about to get the CG treatment... in 3-D of course! Variety [2] reports that Horton Hears a Who! writers Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio are now in the process of bringing The Lorax to the big screen. While Horton was set up at Fox and produced by Blue Sky Studios, The Lorax has landed a deal with Universal and Illumination Entertainment (the same folks behind Despicable Me [3] and Ricky Gervais' Flanimals [4]). Despicable Me director Chris Renaud will be co-directing the film with first-time helmers Paul and Daurio. The story is an environmental fable about a greedy creature known as »

Dr. Seuss’ Lorax To Offer 3-D Mustache Rides In 2012

29 July 2009 8:49 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

"The Lorax" is easily Dr. Seuss' best story and has been my favorite for years (with "The Butter Battle Book" being a close second).  It opens with a young boy in a desolate world who meets a shut-in named The Once-ler.  He tells the youngster a tale of how lush and colorful the world used to be before greed and blind industrialization turned it into a grey wasteland.  And he does it all in Seussian rhyme.  Then he shoots his seed off the balcony and down into the boy's hands... For years fans of "The Lorax" have had to settle for 1972's twenty-five minute TV special if they wanted to see the title character tromp his way through a decimated Truffula forest.  Now though the creative team behind last year's CGI animated hit Horton Hears A Who! has set their sights on this story of ecological devastation and redemption.  Ken Daurio »

Universal Hears The Lorax

29 July 2009 8:47 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The last time Universal made a movie based on a Dr. Seuss book, it was the widely loathed The Cat in the Hat, which might have been the first nail in Mike Myers' career coffin. The film barely made a profit, but after Horton Hears a Who! was a surprise hit for Fox last summer, Universal must have figured they'll give it another shot anyway. And this time, they're making it a message movie. Chris Renaaud, Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio will co-direct Dr. Seuss' The Lorax, an adaptation of the 1971 book about a greedy developer who robs an entire nation of their valuable Truffula trees. Variety writes that Chris Meledandri will produce for Illumination Entertainment, which he formed for Universal after leaving Fox Animation, where he produced Horton Hears a Who as well. Paul and Daurio co-wrote Horton Hears a Who and worked with Renaud on the »

Dr. Seuss Book 'The Lorax' Coming To A 3-D Screen Near You

29 July 2009 7:00 AM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Animated movies seem to be bigger than ever as studios scramble for classic books to turn into big budget 3D and CG animated properties. While it's generally agreed that few have managed to meet the level of Pixar, the animated offerings from DreamWorks and Universal are getting better and better. So I'll hold out hope that Universal will do right by their adaptation of Dr. Seuss' classic tale "The Lorax."

"The Lorax" is an extremely sad story of environmental destruction at the hands of "the Once-ler," who ignores the warning of the Lorax and chops down the magical Truffula forest in order to produce a goofy garment called "Thneed." Destruction and pollution rain down on the area, forcing its quirky residents to flee until only the Once-ler's ruined factories remain.

While the story ends with a hopeful Truffula seed, it's pretty grim in its greedy realism. It sparked a »

Published in 1971, "The Lorax" is deemed to be a fable about human's impact on the environment. The Lorax in the title is a "mossy, bossy man-like creature resembling an emperor tamarin." He becomes the champion of the trees against the big bad Once-ler.

"Dr. Seuss' The Lorax" has a target release date of March 2, 2012, which by the way, falls on the birthday of Theodor Geisel aka Dr. Seuss. »

Lorax Speaks For The Trees In 2012

29 July 2009 12:56 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Recent attempts to bring Dr Seuss to the screen (The Cat in the Hat, The Grinch, Horton Hears a Who) have been patchy at best, but we're optimistic that Universal's 3D animated The Lorax could break the trend.The forest-dwelling Lorax first appeared in print in 1971, but his eco-friendly message - "I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees!" - is as relevant today as ever. Kind of a bleak message though. The Lorax' forest is destroyed by big industry, leaving only a polluted wasteland, and the Lorax buggers off into the smog, never to be seen again. Although it's ultimately revealed that the narrator has a single seed left, with which to start the forest again and tempt the Lorax back, we can probably expect that ending to be substantially cheered up.The script will be written by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio (who did Horton) according to Variety, »

Russell Brand Voicing I Hop

15 July 2009 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Variety says that Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment have cast Russell Brand as the voice of the Easter Bunny in the live-action/CGI family comedy I Hop , coming to theaters on March 4, 2011. Tim Hill, who mixed live action and CGI characters on Alvin and the Chipmunks , will direct starting this fall. The trade says the film revolves around an out-of-work slacker who runs over the Easter Bunny while driving home late. Since the bunny can't hop with a broken leg, the slacker is pressed into duty to save Easter. The film becomes a two-hander between the iconic holiday critter and the slacker, each of whom is running from adulthood. The script was written by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio, who wrote Illumination's first animated project, Despicable Me , for »

Russell Brand Heads To I Hop

15 July 2009 12:59 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Russell Brand is teasing his hair shagging a model voicing the Easter Bunny in new CG / live-action film I Hop*. Now I know what you're all thinking: there's no such thing as Russell Brand - but it's movie magic, so trust us, it could work.The film sees an out-of-work slacker accidentally run over the Easter Bunny, injuring his leg. The slacker is then pressed into work as the Bunny's replacement / partner to save Easter (wait, didn't we see this before and wasn't it called The Santa Clause?), only for the two to bond when they realise they're both trying to avoid the responsibilities of adulthood.The whole thing's set to be directed by Tim Hill, who of course brought us the Alvin and the Chipmunks film. Which, on the bright side, at least means he knows how to direct a mixture of CG and live-action. The script was written »
