Burton Takes Alice to "Wonderland"

Well it was only a matter of time. "Alice in Wonderland" is finally in the hands of director Tim Burton. Walt Disney is teaming up with the legendary director for a live action, and probably very bizarre, version of the classic tale.

Currently, rising Australian actress Mia Wasikowska is in talks for the role of Alice. (Currently she stars as a regular returnee on HBO's series "In Treatment.") The movie's script was written by Linda Woolverton. ("Beauty and the Beast," "The Lion King," "Homeward Bound") Shooting will begin this November and will be filmed in both live action and motion-capture.

"Alice in Wonderland" is rumored to arrive in theaters 2010 in Disney's Digital 3D.

Not too keen on the 3D crap, but everything else sounds pretty cool. "Alice in Wonderland" and Tim Burton? Must have been love at first sight.
