Benedict Cumberbatch will voice The Grinch in an upcoming film of the same name, according to new reports.
From Vanity Fair:
The news was delivered by Illumination Entertainment C.E.O. Chris Meledandri, who told CinemaCon’s audience of theater owners on Wednesday, “We were determined to make a [casting] choice that would not only define this version of The Grinch as absolutely singular, but most importantly, we were looking for a voice to express comedic wickedness while embodying vulnerability.”
“It is that vulnerability that allows us to create a character that is not only highly entertaining, but also has an irresistible appeal,” Meledandri said, adding that the animated film, The Grinch—expected in November 2017—will be “both modern and classic.”
Stay tuned for more details about the impending classic.
