I am an unashamed Tim Burton fan and I think this should be interesting.
The IMDB does not have the casting yet, so I thought maybe we could have some fun with it.
Obviously Johnny Depp will be in it. Probably as the Mad Hatter.
Helena Bonham Carter could easily be the Queen of Hearts.
Here is the list of major characters:
The White Rabbit
Bill the Lizard
The Cheshire Cat
The March Hare
The Queen of Hearts
The Knave of Hearts
The King of Hearts
The Mock Turtle
Tim Burton does some pretty amazing visual stuff, but - :dons flame-retardant suit: - I wish he would take his lack of storytelling ability and cringeworthy casting choices and go home. I’m sick of his movies. And on top of that, this is just unnecessary. How many times has Alice been on screen? We need another?
Who is the current “Christina Ricci” / “Winona Ryder” who would clearly be chosen to play Alice? Someone with a pretty-but-dark side to them, and aged around fifteen. Perhaps Anna-Sophia Robb, who was in Burton’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory?
I wish he wasn’t going over such well worn ground. If there’s one work that has been reinterpreted too many times in a style similar to Burton’s it’s Alice in Wonderland (second only to The Wizard of Oz). Give me Tim Burton’s The Jungle Book or Tim Burton’s The Little Mermaid and I might be more interested (Hans Christian Anderson in particular would be a good match for his filter).
Yeah, me too. Plus, you totally know the best roles are going to Depp and Bonham Carter no matter what. I mean, they’re great, but maybe a little variety? And his movies all look so over the top now with the graphics and all–Charlie and the Chocolate Factory just kind of overstimulated me. It didn’t look REAL. Sweeney Todd was okay, but again, a little over the top for me. If he went back to his Beetlejuice or Edward Scissorhands or Batman look, I wouldn’t mind. Those actually felt real.
