Ahhh…another interesting remake coming our way soon. I’m still looking for a copy of the doomed 1972 musical version with Peter Sellers in it (cover to the left)…seriously, if anyone ever finds it, I will donate a kidney or 2. I probably shouldn’t say that online.
But this time it’s Tim Burton who has a crack at Alice, with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter (who else?) and Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen…and a whole bunch of other famous peeps. It’ll be interesting to see how Tim does at such a seminal book, and whether he can pull off what many versions haven’t quite done yet. There are already mutterings about Alice now being a 19 year old, but hey. It looks pretty flippen awesome. Sod the football – bring on 2010 Alice I say!
