So apparently this is old news. But Tim Burton is making Alice in Wonderland. With like 50 of my favorite actors. *dies* The usual suspects are in it—Johnny Depp (Mad Hatter), Helena Bonham Carter (Red Queen)—but also starring are Timothy Spall, Alan Fucking Rickman (Caterpillar!), Stephen Fucking Fry (Cheshire Cat), Christopher Fucking Lee (the Jabberwock), and … More zomg
