Johnny Depp To Star As Dr. Seuss In Biopic?

File this story under “so obvious it hurts.” According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Johnny Depp will produce a biopic about famed children’s author Dr. Seuss–and he may star in it, too!

Depp, who’s never met a quirky, colorful, childlike and fictional universe he didn’t love, seems like a good fit for the role. Previously, he’s starred as a pirate, a candy maven and a mad hat-wearer. Then again, does anyone really know what Dr. Seuss looked like or acted like? We’re all familiar with his stories, but few of us know anything about the man.

Producers say that the Seuss film probably won’t be full of CGI elements the same way Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Alice In Wonderland were, but they haven’t ruled out an animated or CGI element. Perhaps we’ll see the daydreams of Dr. Seuss come to life on the big screen like never before.
