Johnny Depp to star as Dr. Seuss in new biopic?

Johnny Depp will produce a live-action biopic on legendary children’s author and illustrator Theodor Geisel, best known by his pseudonym Dr. Seuss. He will potentially star as Geisl in the picture too.

Illumination Entertainment and Infinitum Nihil are developing the project, with In Treatment writer Keith Bunin penning the screenplay.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will not be a CGI-spectacular along the lines of Depp’s Alice in Wonderland (although there will likely some “animated bells and whistles”).

Seems more likely the film will recall Finding Neverland, the 2004 Best Picture nominee in which Depp played Peter Pan author J.M. Barrie.

Discuss: How long until Tim Burton is announced as director, right?
