A Grinched rumor20 Dec 2000
S.A._JCFan and Wesley Hofmann found the following scoop, sent to Dark Horizons by "Harry Angel", regarding a possible sequel to Jim Carrey's mega-hit "The Grinch".
«Hard as it might be to believe (or not), barely a month after its release, a treatment fell into my hot little hands for a project called HOW THE GRINCH SAVED CHRISTMAS, and nope, that's not a typo. This sequel to the mammoth Uni hit concerns the green guy's impending wedding to Martha May and his eventual search for his family. Also, believe it or not, it's damned funny (if not a bit formulaic).
And all I'll say at this point is that if you though The Grinch was a Grinch, wait till you meet his dad! Apparently the writers thought Jim Carrey's Grinch sounded enough like Sir Sean Connery for them to envision him as Papa Grinch. Sounds like wishful casting, and while unlikely, can't you just imagine…?»
Last minute note: On a studio press release, Universal Pictures just announced that "The Grinch" has become the highest-grossing film of 2000, passing "Mission Impossible 2" last night. In only 33 days of release, "The Grinch" has earned $216,418,280 becoming Universal Pictures' fifth biggest hit, following "E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial", "Jurassic Park", "Jaws" and "The Lost World: Jurassic Park", and one of the top 25 biggest grossing films of all time.
