The Grinch sure is hard to please. Universal has its eye on Jim Carrey to play him in a live-action version, and the crotchety bugger’s still not happy. ”The Grinch has serious emotional problems,” says Peter Seaman, who’s working on a first draft of the script with Jeffrey Price (the two cowrote ”Who Framed Roger Rabbit?”) for Ron Howard to direct. So what’s a screenwriter to do? Grinch analysis, of course, exploring all those dark issues Dr. Seuss glossed over. ”We have to come up with the first act of the Grinch’s life and then the third act,” Seaman says. ”What made him so grinchy and then what happens after his change of heart.”
