If only Johnny Depp would play more eccentric authors! Oh. Wait. The poor-at-comparisons mega-star is set to produce a live-action film about Theodor Geisel (a.k.a. Dr. Seuss) for Illumination Entertainment with eyes toward possibly starring as well. Per THR, "the film is unlikely to take the fantastical CGI-coated style of 'Alice in Wonderland,'" but that hasn't been ruled out. Illumination has produced 'Despicable Me' and 'Hop,' and has an adaptation of Geisel's 'The Lorax' set for next year. [THR/Risky Business]
