Is nothing sacred? It doesn't seem like it, as "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," one of the best animated Christmas movies around, is reportedly getting remade.

Variety is reporting that Universal Pictures, Illumination Entertainment and Dr. Seuss' widow Audrey Geisel are working together to reboot the classic Seuss story. In 1966, Chuck Jones made a version of the tale that has definitely lasted the test of time, and then Jim Carrey starred in a live-action version from Universal called "The Grinch" in 2000.

Apparently two attempts isn't enough, and nothing can just be left alone. It's worth noting that there are plenty of other Seuss tales to cull from ("Hop on Pop," anyone?), but for some reason this seems to be the one that is being brought to the big screen. Illumination is also working on an animated adaptation of "Cat in the Hat."
