Jim Carrey in talks to play the prolific Dr. Seuss

Postby Veysel » Tue Feb 04, 2020 12:57 am

Jim Carrey is in discussions to join Seuss, as the world’s most famous children’s author himself in an upcoming biopic.

Jim Carrey has numerous memorable roles in his filmography. However, one that seems to continue to grow in popularity is his turn as The Grinch in Ron Howard’s live-action adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The tale has also been immortalized as an animated Christmas special, but younger generations have increasingly looked to the live-action film during the holiday season.

Carrey made his mark in the industry as a rubber-faced comedian, however he has proved numerous times – in films like Man on the Moon, The Truman Show, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – that he should be taken seriously as a dramatic force as well. The multiple Golden Globe winner was even nominated for his performance as the Grinch, which is an accomplishment all to itself.

Well, it seems that Carrey has shown interest in digging even deeper into that source material. Our sources have indicated to us that as of late December, Jim Carrey was in discussions with Entertainment One and Rain Dog Films to star as Ted “Dr. Seuss” Geisel in the biopic, Seuss. Carla Hacken is attached as the producer, though there currently isn’t a director attached. Eyal Podell and Jonathan Stewart scripted the drama, which has been hailed as one of Hollywood’s top unproduced scripts for years now.

Jim Carrey in talks to play Dr. Seuss

I have been seeing articles on Jim. Saying that he is in talks to play a dramatic biopic movie about the children's author Dr. Seuss. I read that it's gonna be a drama. The movie's gonna start at Dr. Seuss' ages from 8 to 50. I think it'll be great to see Jim do another serious drama. I hope it's true. I love to see Jim do more dramas. I rather see him in more dramas than comedies.
I have read articles about the film. They have a script but not a director for it. I know it's just talks and there's nothing confirmed yet.

I think its a great idea
Would like to see him
Co-direct it too
Jim's a pretty smart guy
So few really know him
If they only knew
"Take a chance on him"
I believe "They won't regret it"

So many people (myself included)
Don't develope their intapped
Talents due to lack of opportunity
Or plain fear
And we know where fear comes from

How can U combine
Great artists into one story
It seems so impossible
I have favorite painting I have
Each one is something special to me
Either a reminder or a hope
Or a wonderful memory
Most are of my family or extended family
