Okay, so I just found out they were making a movie of The Lorax and I wasn’t sure how this made me feel – mostly because this is like my favourite Dr Seuss book ever. So I went hunting for the trailer a few things about it made me feel a little better. Mostly that it’s done by the guys who did Despicable me – which I really liked. However it still remains to be seen exactly how they deal with the source material.
Here is the trailer so you can make up your own mind.
Shortly for release (July 2011) is a movie based on the best selling books about Horrid Henry, by Francesca Simon and Tony Ross. This will be the first British kids movie to be shot in 3D (I’m not a huge fan of 3D but I will wait and see before making a judgement).
Horrid Henry: The Movie stars Anjelica Huston, Richard E Grant, Rebecca Front, Parminder Nagra, Jo Brand, Prunella Scales and Matthew Horne. It introduces new comers Scarlett Stitt as Moody Margaret, Ross Marron as Perfect Peter and Theo Stevenson as Horrid Henry. The script was written by Lucinda Whiteley and directed by Nick Moore.
