Benedict Cumberbatch is going to be the Grinch

Stop everything: Benedict Cumberbatch is going to be the Grinch in the animated remake!

Cumberbatch

As if there weren’t already enough reasons to love Benedict Cumberbatch. Now your little ones are going to love him too – the big man himself is going to be the voice of the Grinch in the children’s Christmas classic animated remake.

The Sherlock and The Hobbit star is going to be taking on the role of one of Dr Seuss’ most famous characters in the next How the Grinch Stole Christmas. AND, what’s more, it’s being re-made by the team behind Despicable Me. Does it get better than this? We doubt it.

Curb your enthusiasm though ladies, I’m afraid it’s not out until November 2017 – but just remember that good things come to those who wait.
