The Directhor has just got scoop that Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter will star in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland for Disney

The movie, which stars Mia Wasikowska as Alice and Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, will use a combination of live action and performance-capture technology to tell the Lewis Carroll story, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Hathaway is playing the White Queen, a benevolent monarch who is deposed and banished by her sister, the Red Queen (Carter), who has an affinity for crying out, "Off with their heads!" The White Queen needs Alice to slay a creature known as the Bandersnatch.

It sounds like a very interesting production but somewhat predictable as Tim Burton's crafts lean toward a slightly morbid comedy for children. We personally are excited for its outcome seeing as Alice in Wonderland has long been stereotyped to have a twisted meaning to its colourful Wonderland.
