Depp as Seuss?
Posted by: Gillian Engberg

Following his film role as Peter Pan author J.M. Barrie in Finding Neverland, Johnny Depp (or, rather, his production company) has just announced that he’s planning a biopic about Theodor Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss), with the strong possibility that he will star as the Cat in the Hat’s creator. Is the children’s book author biopic a movie trend that we can expect to continue? Will we be watching Julia Roberts on screen as Margaret Wise Brown anytime soon? And do these films rekindle interest in the authors’ books? We’d love to hear your thoughts on the subject, and while you’re at it, weigh in on which writers for children or teens you’d most like to see as the focus for a future film.
