Seems as Mr. Burton has picked the girl he wants to play Alice in his upcoming movie of Alice In Wonderland. Her name is Mia Wasikowska, and she's from Australia.
An interesting choice, I think. Not quite what I expected, but word is she's pretty good. I've been looking forward to this movie for quite some time. It's one of my favorite "classic" tales, and hopefully Tim Burton will really bring out the dark and disturbing parts of the story.
What most people who know about this film are REALLY hoping for though (myself included), is a full telling of American McGee's Alice, where Alice is older, and she returns to Wonderland.
With a knife.
It gets CRAZY dark and creepy and generally farked up. We'll see.
Oh, forgot to mention, Johnny Depp (yay!) is in this as well, but we're not sure who he's playing. I can't decide if he'd be a better Cheshire Cat or Mad Hatter. I'm voting for Cheshire Cat, I think.
