‘Alice in Wonderland’ The Movie!

On the heels of the announcement that Johnny Depp will play the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton’s adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, the news this week is that Anne Hathaway’s been signed to play the White Queen (Helena Bonham Carter is her evil sister, the Red Queen; clearly the more challenging role, with all that screaming, “Off with their heads!”).

Who would make a good hookah-smoking catepillar? I’m thinking Danny deVito or Joe Pesci.

Filming has begun in Cornwall, England. If you’re curious to see how Alice is being portrayed, INF Daily has some  shots from the set, with Australian actress Mia Wasikowska in her Alice garb. The movie is currently scheduled for release in March, 2010.

Alice is in our Upcoming Movies — with Tie-ins listings (even though the tie-in is not available quite yet), along with several other titles scheduled for mid-2009 into 2010:
