This may not come as a surprise to anyone, but Johnny Depp has been cast in Tim Burton’s upcoming Alice in Wonderland 3D movie, to be produced by Disney.  What’s interesting is he’s playing the Mad Hatter.  I have to say, this is pretty awesome news, and I’m now looking forward to the film even more!

Mia Wasikowska is playing Alice, but no word on anyone else’s casting, though I am thinking we’ll see a lot of CGI characters for the White Rabbit and so on.  

I really hope Burton goes all out with his production design on this one.  His version of Alice in Wonderland could be one of his greatest films yet!  With veteran Burton actor Depp onboard, this movie is aimed to please!  I recently saw Once Upon A Time In Mexico, and Depp just made the film that much better. It’s one of Robert Rodriguez’ best flicks I’ve seen in a while.
