Hathaway, Bonham Carter Join Alice in Wonderland


Anne Hathaway (Rachel Getting Married) and Helena Bonham Carter will star in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland for Disney.

The movie, which stars Mia Wasikowska as Alice and Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, will use a combination of live action and performance-capture technology to tell the Lewis Carroll story, says The Hollywood Reporter.

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.

Richard Zanuck, Joe Roth and Jennifer and Suzanne Todd are producing.
