Tim Burton disagrees with me. Just like he did with classics like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Planet of the Apes, Burton is now putting his spin on Alice in Wonderland. According to Reuters, none other than Johnny Depp will be playing the roll of the Mad Hatter. I’m anticipating a mutant love-child combination of Wonka and Jack Sparrow. What do you think?
BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE!
The same article also states that Johnny Depp will be playing Tonto in Jerry Bruckheimer’s new Lone Ranger Remake. Jay Silverheels is spinning in his grave.
One a brighter note, he’ll be joining the late Heath Ledger, Tom Waits, and Colin Farrell in Terry Gilliam’s: The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnasus sometime in 2009.
