Tim Burton is splashing some estrogen across Alice in Wonderland with the casting of Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter. While Hathaway is a bit of a surprise, Carter has already been caught on set in Burton attire.
Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter Follow Alice Down the Rabbit Hole
Directed by Tim Burton, Alice in Wonderland will use a combination of live action and performance-capture technology. Mia Wasikowska is already filming as Alice and Johnny Depp has signed on as the Mad Hatter.
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.
Anne Hathaway, who recently made cover on Entertainment Weekly, can next be seen in the thriller Passengers.
