Johnny Depp back for Wonderland Sequel

Surprising nobody, it’s officially been confirmed that Johnny Depp will reprise his role as the Mad Hatter in the unnecessary but inevitable follow up to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Despite the recent colossal box office failure of The Lone Ranger, Disney remains convinced that deep down every man woman and child on earth does ultimately still just want to see Johnny Depp in bizarre hats and elaborate goth makeup.

Depp was also recently confirmed as the mustached lead in Lionsgate’s adaptation of Kyril Bonfiglioli’s novel The Great Mortdecai Mustache Mystery. That film, directed by David Koepp sees Depp playing a roguish art dealer on the hunt for Nazi Gold. The Wonderland sequel will see Muppets Director James Bobin replace departing director Tim Burton behind the camera.
