Although The Lone Ranger may have unperformed in its opening week, the future is looking bright for the continued partnership of leading man Johnny Depp and Walt Disney Pictures. Variety is reporting that Depp's production company, Infinitum Nihil, is planning a move from Warner Bros. Pictures to Disney and that he's now close to signing on to reprise his role as the Mad Hatter in the upcoming Alice in Wonderland sequel, tentatively titled Through the Looking Glass.

James Bobin was recently reported to be in talks to helm the sequel. The original film, itself a sequel of sorts to Carroll's 19th century texts, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking-Glass," starred Depp alongside Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Crispin Glover, Matt Lucas, Mia Wasikowska, Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, Christopher Lee, Paul Whitehouse and Barbara Windsor and grossed more than a billion dollars at the worldwide box office.

Linda Woolverton, who scripted the Burton film, is again providing the screenplay this time around.

Depp is also slated to reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean 5 from Kon-Tiki directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg and was recently said to be in talks to headline Lionsgate's Mortdecai.
