Johnny Depp is set to produce a biopic about the beloved children's author Dr. Seuss.

The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star has signed on to develop the live-action film with executives from Illumination Entertainment and Infinitum Nihil, with the possibility of starring as the classic writer himself.

Keith Bunin, known for his work on U.S. TV drama "In Treatment," has been commissioned to write the screenplay, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Dr. Seuss, real name Theodor Geisel, is most famous for crafting political cartoons and penning books such as 'The Cat in the Hat' and 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas.' He lost his battle with throat cancer in 1991.
