True story. The classic Dr. Seuss story How the Grinch Stole Christmas is returning to the big screen in 2017. This time, the film will be simply titled The Grinch. Illumination, the folks that brought us Despicable Me and Minions, announced at CinemaCon they had found their Grinch – and it is Benedict Cumberbatch. Producer Chris Meledandri said Cumberbatch’s voice exudes “comedic wickedness while embodying vulnerability.” The new film, featuring a story adapted by Michael LeSieur, will be directed by Pete Candeland and Yarrow Cheney. The film is scheduled for a Nov. 10, 2017 release. Stay tuned, kids….
