The sequel that was rumored to be in the works years ago in back in the news. James Bobin, the director of 2011’s The Muppets and next year’s The Muppets… Again!, has been reported to be in talks to helm the sequel to the 2010 Tim Burton blockbuster Alice in Wonderland, currently titled Into the Looking Glass.
The script for the sequel would be penned by Linda Woolverton who also wrote the first film.
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.
There is no word yet on what the plot of the sequel film would follow or if the principle cast of the first film would return.
