Animated ‘Cat in the Hat’ Movie in Development

Universal / Dreamworks

Bosses at Warner Animation Group are developing a new Cat In The Hat film.

A series of films based on the highly-popular Dr. Seuss tale and other stories will be produced under a partnership with Warner Animation Group and Dr. Seuss Enterprises. The new Cat in the Hat will be the first project.

The Cat in the Hat centers upon a trouble-making puss who shows up to the home of a young girl and her brother on a rainy day while their mother is out. The book was first published in 1957.

In 2003, Mike Myers starred in a live-action film version alongside Spencer Breslin and Dakota Fanning.
