Johnny Depp to star as the Mad Hatter

Johnny Depp to star as The Mad Hatter in Burton's upcoming "Alice in the Wonderland"



The Tim Burton-Johnny Depp couple is back. The director is beginning the cinematic adaptation of "Alice in Wonderland" and is planning to bring back his favourite actor. In Burton's eyes, the tale has a character which would be perfect for Depp: the Mad Hatter. The film will be out in 2010 and, if press leaks are confirmed, it will be the seventh time that Burton and Depp will be working together, who have on their curriculum such successful films together as "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow", "Edward Scissorhands" and the recent "Sweeney Todd".

for the WIN. im excited.

edit : tbh, i don't think i'll ever be sick of these depp-burton movies.
they could spit one out every year for the rest of their lives and i'd be buying a ticket ( or at the very least, renting the dvd, hee hee ) to each of 'em

Fun Fact : Johnny Depp is godfather to Tim Burton's son ( Billy Ray Burton ) as of 2007

LOVE johnny
i just hope he can create something really new and different for this character
burtsauce 7th-Aug-2008 06:38 am (UTC)
you mean you hope he can play someone besides himself for the first time in years.
marcbouwer 7th-Aug-2008 04:53 pm (UTC)
i always thought he brought a completely new character in each of his movies? i never once said OH I FEEL LIKE I'VE SEEN THIS CHARACTER BEFORE.

daydreamrachey 7th-Aug-2008 06:23 am (UTC)

suspiria_1 7th-Aug-2008 06:55 am (UTC)
and who have you moved on to fangirl wise? There's not many actors I can think of that wouldn't be a downgrade from him.
flyingpigs_live 7th-Aug-2008 12:47 pm (UTC)
lmao right. I can think of about 10 who be quite an UPGRADE.

velvetunicorn 7th-Aug-2008 01:15 pm (UTC)
me too. i'm so sick of everyone saying how great he is. it makes me not want to like him.
her_ocean_blue 7th-Aug-2008 06:17 am (UTC)
i loved that book when i was little. my dad read it to me in chapters before bed. but the movie fucking freaked me out. disney makes some fucked up shit.
boutiquebeauty 7th-Aug-2008 07:39 am (UTC)
IA.
this movie freakin' scared me when i was younger & i refuse to watch it ever again.
sibylblack 7th-Aug-2008 09:28 am (UTC)
Yes, the Disney movie was creepy... once I was watching it when I was sick and for some reason it made me feel all upset.
xoqbanteaseox 7th-Aug-2008 02:01 pm (UTC)
omg I know..definitely a disturbing movie for a 4 yr old
magicpineapple 7th-Aug-2008 09:18 pm (UTC)
And the fucked up-ness of it is why it's awesome. :D
xmas_n_hollis 7th-Aug-2008 06:17 am (UTC)
they've gone from strange and creative to typical and boring
xorogueox 7th-Aug-2008 06:24 am (UTC)
iasfm. Now, I'm just angry and disappointed.
jennomac 7th-Aug-2008 06:17 am (UTC)
Well who didn't see this coming when the movie was announced?

And I assume Helena Bonham-Carter will be the Queen and Danny Elfman will do the score?
incuvana 7th-Aug-2008 06:19 am (UTC)
hahaha, word

teamhappyfun 7th-Aug-2008 06:20 am (UTC)
That's What I was thinking. HBC would make a really good queen though.
incuvana 7th-Aug-2008 06:23 am (UTC)
definitely. although the obvious choice, she'd make an amazing queen so she shouldn't be chastised for it.

xorogueox 7th-Aug-2008 06:23 am (UTC)
It's true, and it pisses me off sfm. Both of Burton and Depp should really just gtfo. Depp will play an eccentric guy again *gasp* and he'll get an oscar nom for it too.
corroded_tears 7th-Aug-2008 07:00 am (UTC)
Danny Elfman is god, tbh. Oingo Boingo is phenominal.

chiroro 7th-Aug-2008 06:17 am (UTC)
yes. my favorite book is finally becoming a movie.
hongkongaton 7th-Aug-2008 06:18 am (UTC)
it's already been made into a movie loads of times?
koalafrog 7th-Aug-2008 06:21 am (UTC)

avilewoman 7th-Aug-2008 06:27 am (UTC)

moondream 7th-Aug-2008 06:17 am (UTC)
Mmm, Johnny
avilewoman 7th-Aug-2008 06:18 am (UTC)
So he'll just be Willy Wonka with a bigger hat.

Bleh I'm so over Burton/Depp. They peaked with Edward Scissorhands (though Ed Wood was good too).
radvivi 7th-Aug-2008 09:32 am (UTC)
Ed Wood is one of my all-time favorites. It's so sweet and sad and endearing. "It's uncanny! Look at his head! It's uncanny!"

Also, Sleepy Hollow was pretty good.
strokemethere 7th-Aug-2008 06:18 am (UTC)
I probably would have been more excited about this BEFORE he did Willy Wonka.

katiew402 7th-Aug-2008 10:12 am (UTC)
IA,they fucked willy wonka up. You cant improve on perfection bbs.
rhcp 7th-Aug-2008 03:05 pm (UTC)
ia. i left the theatre and all i could think was that id disrespected gene in the most horrific way.
creativeescape 7th-Aug-2008 06:18 am (UTC)
