Dr. Seuss to operate in 3-D!

Another Dr Seuss classic is headed to the big screen – and this one’s gonna get right up in yer’ face!

Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment are joining forces to turn the Dr. Seuss book “The Lorax” into a 3-D CG animated feature, says Variety.

Though published in 1971, “The Lorax” has a timely “green” theme. It 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.

The flick hits screens March 2, 2012.

Previous Seuss-inspired flicks include “The Cat in the Hat”, “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas” and [the best of the bunch] “Horton Hears a Who”.
