Press Trust of India quotes Dailymail as saying, "Depp is unrecognisable in his latest role." I beg to differ. It just looks like Edward Scissorhands made it to middle age. That's Johnny Depp as a slightly darker version of the Mad Hatter, a role I fear will be a repeat of his uber-bizarre Willy Wanka. Let's hope not. *shudder*
Joining Depp as fellow cast members are a few familiar names: Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, Alan Rickman as the Caterpillar, and Crispin Glover (Oh McFly!) as the Knave of Hearts. As you can see this is not just a scarier vision of the Disney version. You may want to read the real thing before hitting the movie theaters to refresh your memory of the actual story. Don't worry though. You have plenty of time. The movie is not scheduled for release until March 2010.
