It’s been made officially unofficial as of early this morning (super early this morning for me, since I’m on the West coast this week.)
Burton has cast, surprise surprise Helena Bonham-Carter as the “off with her head” Red Queen, in the upcoming live-action, stop-animation, CGI fest remake of Alice In Wonderland.
In a turning surprise, the White Queen will be played by Anne Hathaway. After seeing Hathaway do an amazing job hosting SNL this past Saturday, I’m game to see just about anything she’s in. If you didn’t catch the episode, you should download it, or watch the highlights on YouTube, because it was a great week.
It’s no secret that Tim Burton and Johnny Depp have giant man-crushes on each other, and there’s nothing wrong with that. The pair has brought us Sweeney Todd, Corpse Bride, and the unforgettable Edward Scissorhands. Now it’s being reported that Depp will appear in Burton’s adaptation of Alice in Wonderland as the Mad Hatter.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Depp pops up in the film, but so far it’s missing from his IMDb page.
Alice is supposed to start shooting next year and is set for release in 2010.
