Universal president admits to making shitty movies & hopes for new direction

Last year the president & CCO of Universal Pictures, Ron Meyer, admitted to his company making shitty movies. Meyer has now come out and clarified what he meant by shitty movies, after citing movies like Cowboys & Aliens and Land of the Lost:
"we make some good movies and some shitty movies. Nobody ever sets out to make a shitty movie.”
 Along with the clarification, Meyer has also expressed his interest in making a sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman (despite still having two months until it is released) and making more Dr. Seuss movies including a new animated version of The Cat in the Hat. He also is not a fan of 3D so that gives me some hope.

Personally, I would be down for a new version of The Cat in the Hat. The one with Jim Carrey was such a piece of shit. As far as other Dr. Seuss stories go they have already done The Lorax, How the Grinch Stole Christmas (another shitty Carrey flick) and Horton Hears a Who, so I don't know what they might think of after The Cat in the Hat. Maybe an adaptation of Gerald McBoing Boing?
