According to The Hollywood Reporter Australian actress Mia Wasikowska is in final negotiations to star as Alice in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Burton has been looking for his Alice for quite a while, so she must have something special about her. Mia can next be seen in Defiance alongside Daniel Craig and Liev Schreiber, and then in Amelia alongside Hilary Swank, Ewan McGregor and Richard Gere.
Alice in Wonderland will be shot with live-action and performance-capture footage and presented in 3-D. Filming is expected to begin in November, so expect more casting announcements in the upcoming months. I’ll put my money on Helena Bonham Carter playing the Queen of Hearts.
