Actor TIM ALLEN can't wait to start production on the next DR SEUSS project THE CAT IN THE HAT - and he's decided the story will be horrific.
With JIM CARREY's first Seuss success, HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS, making a massive $55.1 million (£36.7 million) on its opening weekend, it's all go for the follow up.
Director RON HOWARD insists he won't direct the second Seuss story, but Allen knows exactly what he's planning to do with the movie. He says, "My dream is to give it the edge that scared me as a child. Like ALIEN, we'll see very little of the cat. He's a human being who turns into the cat - like a werewolf or vampire - as he gets more and more frustrated trying to deal with these children."(SVD/EW/RGS)
