New Grinch movie in the works


A remake of “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” is in the works, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The previous film version of the Dr Seuss classic, released in 2000, was directed by Ron Howard and starred Jim Carrey as the green-skinned yuletide loather.

This new version, produced by Universal and Illumination, will be a 3D animated feature.

Commercials director Peter Candeland will direct the film, with Illumination CEO Chris Meledandri (“Dr Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who”) and Audrey Geisel, widow of Dr. Seuss author Theodor Geisel, producing.

No word yet on who’ll voice ‘The Grinch’.
