UPDATE: Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter in Tim Burton’s ALICE IN WONDERLAND?
UPDATE: IGN has confirmed the rumor that Johnny Depp will be part of Alice In Wonderland. It is however unclear whether he will merely lend his voice to a computer-animated version of the Mad Hatter, or if he will physically be in the movie.
According to Empire, Johnny Depp could be playing The Mad Hatter in Tim Burton’s upcoming reinvention of ALICE IN WONDERLAND.
Is the rumour true? Well, it’s certainly not confirmed, but we heard talk of it not so long ago at Pinewood Studios, where the film is set to shoot (the UK facility has become a favourite of Burton, who also shot Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Sweeney Todd there) which leads us to believe it’s very probable. Also, it’s a Burton film so would a Depp cameo be particularly surprising? We must stress again that this is not definite and Disney could not confirm it. So just consider this highly likely and keep your fingers crossed that it happens.
This could be the best casting ever this year. Now I actually want this to be true, I would get such a kick out of seeing Johnny Depp reinventing The Mad Hatter.
What do you guys think? Do you think Johnny Depp is a good match for The Mad Hatter?
