    Tim Burton to Direct Alice and Frankenweenie
    Source: Variety
    November 16, 2007


    Tim Burton is pairing up with Disney to direct two 3-D films, Alice in Wonderland and Frankenweenie.

    Variety says the two-movie deal with Walt Disney Studios begins with Alice in Wonderland, which will combine performance-capture imagery, currently seen in Beowulf, with live-action footage.

    The script by Linda Woolverton (The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast) is based on the Lewis Carroll classic.

    Burton, who is wrapping Sweeney Todd at Paramount and DreamWorks, will tackle Alice in Wonderland early next year, with production set to wrap by May.

    After "Alice," Burton will helm and produce Frankenweenie, based on his 1984 short film about a pet dog brought back to life by his loyal owner. The movie will be shot in stop-motion animation and shown in digital 3-D.

    Not too interested in Frankenweenie(although I'll see it) but I am extremely excited about seeing Tim Burton's take on Alice in Wonderland. Imagine what it will look like! I think he should do one of them stop-motion though.

    But it's with Disney so I don't expect anything special. Gothed-up Alice would'v been nice.

    Frakenweenie? Oh man, I saw that movie once as a kid and I loved the hell out of it, but I really haven't thought about it since then. I'm kinda looking forward to that more then Alice, though that'll probably be pretty sick too. :up:

    After seeing Beowulf in it's 3D glory, I'm 10x more excited for this now.

    I'm sure Depp will be the Mad Hatter.

    I always thought Burton would be more perfect for Wizard of Oz.

    Terry Gilliam would make a way more cooler alice in Wonderland.

    It'll look exactly the same as all his other films.

    I knew it would happen eventually. John Lasseter who is pretty much running Disney now has been friends with Burton since they were both young animators working for Disney back in the early `80s.
