Although The Lone Ranger wasn’t anything anyone had hoped it would be, it appears that Disney still wants to squeeze every penny they can out of Johnny Depp.
Deadline is reporting that Depp is in the final stages of locking down a return as the Mad Hatter in an Alice in Wonderland sequel.
It’s already been rumored that Tim Burton was ousted as director and will be replaced by Muppets director James Bobin. So, it’s a tad surprising that Johnny would continue on without his partner in crime. But I guess money makes up for any misgivings in the air.
Although I wasn’t a fan of the original, Alice in Wonderland made over a billion dollars for Disney in 2010. So, it shouldn’t be all that surprising that they’d be clamoring for a sequel.
