I just heard that Tim Burton is remaking Alice In Wonderland. Ever since he wiped his butt with "Planet of the Apes" and "Willie Wonka" I haven't been all that excited about anything he's doing. I'm not really against him either. I'm just...eh.
Just saw this picture of Depp (of course) playing the Mad Hatter:
And I want to say congratulations to Burton for creating the most disgusting and uninteresting Mad Hatter of all time. Makes me think of Elijah Wood as a zombie...or 1980's vomit...or Ronald Mcdonald.
And OF COURSE Helena Bonham Carter will be the Queen of Hearts. That'll be something new---her playing a crazy woman. I like her and Depp, but they don't have to play every eccentric character, do they? Are there no other actors in the world?
No make up required. Just slap a hat on him.
After all, there's Carrot Top.
Yes, I might have been happier to hear Carrot Top would be the Mad Hatter. I would have said, "Man, I didn't see that coming. Tim Burton's got some crazy shit up his sleeve this time!"
