Helena Bonham Carter looks ready return to her role as the evil Red Queen, as the actress is in final negotiations to join Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska in Disney’s “Through the Looking Glass,” the sequel to 2010′s “Alice in Wonderland.”
James Bobin is on to direct with Joe Roth returning as producer. Plot details are being kept under wraps. Pic will bow on May 27, 2016.
Besides Bonham Carter, Depp and Wasikowska, it’s unknown at this time which actors in the original, such as Anne Hathaway and Alan Rickman, will reprise their roles in this installment.
The first pic grossed more than a billion dollars at the worldwide box office, including $334 million at the domestic B.O.
Bonham Carter has several films set to bow in the next year including “Suffragette,” with Carey Mulligan, and Disney’s “Cinderella,” in which she plays the Fairy Godmother.
Sigh. I loved the first film, but someone just should kill this before it spreads any further.
