Tim Burton to direct Alice in Wonderland remake

Walt Disney has signed director Tim Burton to a two-picture deal to make Alice in Wonderland and Frankenweenie.

Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland will be a performance-capture, live-action adaptation written by Linda Woolverton who also wrote The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast. The film will start production early next year so don’t expect to see it until late 2009 at the earliest.

Following Alice in Wonderland, Tim Burton will direct and produce a feature version of his 1984 short Frankenweenie. The stop-motion feature follows a dog that is brought back from the dead by its devoted owner.

Johnny Depp has signed on as the Mad Hatter.
