Oh, like we didn't all guess this was going to happen the moment Tim Burton's name was thrown into the mix.
I may not be the biggest fan of Tim Burton, but the thought of his style used to populate Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland does tickle my interest. Regardless of my opinion of the filmmaker, the news that came down today about Alice in Wonderland's recent cast made this a must see.
