Tim Burton is working on a Burton-ized version of Alice In Wonderland, a completely different film from American McGee’s Alice, which is supposed to have Sarah Michelle Gellar watching over it.
A thread about the film on Alice In Wonderland fansite Alice-In-Wonderland.net has turned to casting with members on the board buzzing that the part of Alice has been given to a relatively unknown actress Ryan Nicole Parker.
According to IMDB, she does some theater, parts in films we haven’t heard of, some stuff on Degrassi: The Next Generation, stuff like that. That’s also where we got her picture.
Is that Alice?
Lexie from the fan boards says it is:
My brother is working on the movie and he said Alice has been cast. He is a music supervisor for the movie and said there will be a press release about it on July 9th. The role was originally supposed to be Evan Rachel Woods but she backed out. Alice won’t be played by a child but a 23 year old. From what I was told it’s her first Burton movie, and her first big role in a film that will be released world wide. Tim wanted to cast someone who could portray a child but could also capture the odities of the story. My brother told me that the girl playing Alice is wonderful and Tim picked her very quickly. Filming is supposed to start in July with a press release with the entire cast on July 9th! I do know the actresses name but I don’t want to type it here incase there is some kind of rights against that until the press release.
This seems consistent with the discussion on Tim Burton’s IMDB page that says casting is complete.
Guess we’ll know for sure on July 9th.
