Tim Burton is reportedly set to direct a film adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, which will include both live action and animation. He said, "Alice is the first book I ever read to myself and I've never fallen out of love with it. The stories are like drugs for children, you know? It's like, 'Whoa, man.' The imagery, they've never quite nailed making it compelling as a full story. So I think it's an interesting challenge to direct."
Speaking of Burton, I got Big Fish for Christmas, which I totally love, and on Christmas Day, my family went to see Sweeney Todd, which is the opposite of a Christmas movie with all the blood and guts. I was cracking up watching my mom's reaction to throats being slit, bodies being dropped several flights on to the basement floor, and people being ground up and burned alive. Lovely!
