Freaky New ‘Alice’ Is Gonna Be Bad-Ass!

Mia Wasikowska in 'Alice in Wonderland'

Mia Wasikowska in 'Alice in Wonderland'

I’ve been looking around for news about upcoming flicks and I finally saw some pictures from the new Alice in Wonderland and I’m so freaking excited! Mostly because Tim Burton is directing the film and he’ll probably turn the classic into something truly creepy and supernatural … plus, it’s gonna be partially in CGI … the combination of live-action and animation is gonna be pretty freaking cool. Johnny Depp is teaming up with Burton again to play the Mad Hatter … and he kind of looks like a creepy, fucked-up Carrot Top with terrifying eyes … I can’t wait to see how this plays out on-screen. Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter (Burton’s wife and Depp’s frequent on-screen partner), Alan Rickman, Michael Sheen, Crispin Glover and Stephen Fry will also help portray some of the memorable characters from this vintage Disney tale.

Anne Hathaway will play The White Queen … with her blond hair, pale skin and bright, red lips, she looks like the perfect angelic savior of the film. Helena Bonham Carter (The Red Queen) teams up with Depp again (they’ve been together in Sweeney Todd, Corpse Bride and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) looks pretty up-tight and bitchy … I can’t wait to see her as the torturous bitch who overtakes the magical world.

Virtual newcomer Mia Wasikowska took the lead as Alice Kingsley (and beat out actresses Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Seyfried for the role) with blond hair and blue dress in-tow. I absolutely love it when obvious big-dollar flicks cast new talents in the lead role … It kind of gives America the chance to see new people … you know, instead of casting the same people in every fucking movie!

It sucks that we have to wait until 2010 to see the movie … but, I have a feeling it’s gonna be worth the wait. Burton always gives us movies with an edge and if I ever wanted anyone to do a re-make on one of my favorite Disney films … it would have to be him. Plus, the cast is top-notch … it’s gonna be wicked!
