2. It Could Have Been Darker

Tim Burton was originally lined up to direct the live-action version of this film, which starred Jim Carrey. Unfortunately, Tim had a conflict with another movie at the time, and the Grinch just couldn’t wait. Tim was replaced, and we were probably saved from a pretty scary (but surely totally beautiful?!) Tim Burton Grinch. I’d love to see his take on it!
