Burton doing Alice in Wonderland? O...k....

Depp as the Mad Hatter sounds interesting though.
 
Superman Returns was a great film. DO NOT REBOOT!

Not really surprising considering Burton's doing it, but he pulled off Willy Wonka, and there's no reason he can't pull this off as well.

Burton, Depp, and Wonderland. Of course it seems obvious when you come right out with it. But I never saw it coming. Although I'll see it once it's here.

LOL

Which Alice in Wonderland? I mean, there seems to be some awful celebrity filled version made every 10 years. Some are even musicals. Ugh.

Isn't Marylin Manson playing the Queen of Hearts? That's the rumor I've heard for several years now.

I think Depp will make a great Mad Hatter, but I thought his Willy Wonka was the worst role of his career. I know they tried to follow the book more, which I've read, but Depp just didn't fit the part for me.


I wonder who will voice the Cheshire Cat?? Or who will play Alice herself?

Anything that Burton directs, I see.

Anything that has both Burton AND Depp involved, I see on opening night

I thought he did, too.

Well, to be more accurate, I liked the character that he played. Which was completely different from the character with the same name from the other film adaptation of the book (I liked that version, too). Which was, in turn, different from the character with the same name from the book (which I also enjoyed). Whew. Multiple distinct characters with the same name, all of which I liked - that sort of puts him on a short list with Green Lantern and the Flash.

Alice has already been announced.

Alice is over 18? I don't know what direction they're taking this version of the story, but it should be...interesting.

To put it bluntly, this isn't your Disney Alice in Wonderland that most people think of.
