Benedict Cumberbatch To Voice The Grinch

Universal Pictures’ CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas earlier today boasted an appearance by Illumination Entertainment founder and CEO Chris Meledandri who announced new castings for two major 2017 titles.

One was that of “Sherlock” and “Doctor Strange” star Benedict Cumberbatch who has scored the title role of The Grinch in the company’s newly-imagined CG animated version of the holiday classic about a green furry creature who hates Christmas.

Pete Candeland and Yarrow Cheney helm the new film adapted from Dr. Seuss book by Michael LeSieur. It is currently targeting a November 10th 2017 release.
