Hathaway, Bonham Carter for Burton's Alice

The Hollywood Reporter today confirms that Anne Hathaway has accepted the role of the White Queen, a benevolent monarch who is deposed and banished by her sister and needs Alice to slay a creature known as the Bandersnatch, in Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland. Burton’s partner and frequent leading lady Helena Bonham Carter also has joined the film and is set to scream the well-known “Off with their heads!” as the Red Queen. They’ll play alongside another Burton collaborator, Johnny Depp, as the Mad Hatter in the Disney produced film, which will be a combination of live-action and performance-capture technology.
