If you like green eggs and ham, you may want to feast on an upcoming movie about author and illustrator Theodor Geisel, better known to generations of young readers as Dr. Seuss.
"Seuss" will be directed by Stephen Chbosky, who recently helmed "Wonder," a heartwarming family drama starring Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.
The biopic will chronicle the life and career of Geisel in the 1920s, long before he put a hat on a cat or heard a Who.
Dr. Seuss' first book, "And to Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street," was published in 1937. But 20 years would pass before he wrote two of his best-known books in 1957, "The Cat in the Hat" and "How the Grinch Stole Christmas." "Green Eggs and Ham" followed three years later.
Dr. Seuss wrote more than 60 children's books that have sold 600 million copies worldwide. He was 87 when he died of oral cancer in 1991.
