James Bobin, the director of 2011's The Muppets and next year's The Muppets... Again!, could be taking a trip to Wonderland. Variety reports that Bobin is in early talks to helm the big screen sequel to Tim Burton's 2010 blockbuster Alice in Wonderland, currently titled Into the Looking Glass.
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 Johnny Depp, 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.
