How the Grinch Stole Christmas! to Get CG Animated Remake

12 February 2013 6:25 AM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Film adaptations of Dr. Seuss' beloved children's books have been pulling in boatloads of cash over the past decade or so. With the exception of the live action The Cat in the Hat starring Mike Myers, all of them have been huge box office hits even when receiving mediocre reviews -- including Ron Howard's live action take on the holiday classic How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Of course, CG animation is now the medium of choice for almost every movie aimed at a family audience and with Illumination Entertainment in search of a follow-up to The Lorax, they have decided to turn back to this familiar tale once again. That's right, The Grinch is headed back to the screen for a third time... but will audiences be willing to pay to see it again so soon? According to THR, Universal has hired Peter Candeland to direct a new »

‘How The Grinch Stole Christmas’ Getting An Animated Reboot

8 February 2013 6:11 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I was just getting over my withdrawal from Christmas, when suddenly this piece of news came about. I must admit, i’m afraid of a relapse. Back in the 60s Dr Seuss’ tales were mostly animated as TV shorts, and then came the dark ages of live-action interpretations with Ron Howard’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas and Mike Myers as Cat In The Hat. More recently we’ve seen the world of Seuss represented in CG animation with the likes of Horton Hears A Who and The Lorax (my least favourite film of last year). So at the risk of seeming as though they have zero ideas left, How The Grinch Stole Chrostmas is to get the feature length animated treatment.

Universal and Illumination Entertainment, the guys behind Despicable Me, are producing while Peter Candeland is going to direct. This will be Candeland’s cinematic directorial debut after years »

How The Grinch Stole Christmas Remake In The Works

8 February 2013 4:40 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Following the success of last year’s The Lorax, Christopher Meledandri from Illumination Entertainment is reportedly working on a new animated version of  Dr. Seuss classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Melendandri will produce with Seuss’ widow Audrey Geisel onboard as an executive producer and Pete Candeland set to make his feature directorial debut. After working as an animator on Balto and Bonkers among others, Candeland has been behind the music videos for the animated band Gorillaz. In 2000, Universal released the reimagining of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, a live-action version The Grinch starring Jim Carrey, which was not received well by critics and audiences, »

Universal and Illumination Remaking 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas'

7 February 2013 9:19 PM, PST | | See recent news »

After teaming up to bring Dr. Seuss' tales such as The Lorax and Horton Hears a Who to the big screen, Universal Pictures and Illuminaton Entertainment are teaming up again to animate one of the authors rhyming stories. However, this time will mark the first collaboration adapting a book that has already seen two different versions made. Variety reports How the Grinch Stole Christmas is on the docket for an animated adaptation that will be more faithful to the book, which actually lends itself better to the three act structure of a film, making it so less original material has to be created to pad out a feature film adaptation. Pete Candeland is set to make his feature directorial debut with the film after working as an animator on old projects like Balto and "Aladdin: The Animated Series." More recently, Candeland has been behind the music videos for the animated band Gorillaz. »

Universal and Illumination Developing Animated How The Grinch Stole Christmas Reboot

7 February 2013 5:00 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Universal Pictures is taking another stab at the Dr. Seuss classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas!.  Over a decade after Ron Howard’s live-action film starring Jim Carrey, Universal and Illumination Entertainment—the studio behind Despicable Me—are developing an animated adaptation of the classic childrens book.  Peter Candeland is set to direct, and Illumination’s Chris Melendandri will produce with Seuss’ widow Audrey Geisel onboard as an executive producer.  Hit the jump for more details. How the Grinch Stole Christmas! will be Melendandri’s third Seuss adaptation after the charming Horton Hears a Who and the abysmal The Lorax.  Variety reports that producers are currently looking for a screenwriter to tackle the adaptation, but the studio is planning The Grinch as their next Dr. Seuss film to hit theaters.  This is a tad curious, as it was announced last March that an adaptation of The Cat in the Hat »
