Briefly: Sacha Baron Cohen and Johnny Depp are getting set to have a little Sweeney Todd reunion in the Alice in Wonderland sequel Through the Looking Glass. Cohen is in talks to play an unknown role in the film that Disney is putting together, which also will have Mia Wasikowska reprising the role of Alice.
James Bobin (The Muppets) will direct; no plot details have been revealed. While Through the Looking-Glass is well-known as a novel, and one which somewhat inverts or reverses the sequence of Alice, given the degree to which the film Alice in Wonderland deviated from original text it’s safe to say that this will be its own creature as well. The film is set to open on May 27, 2016. [Variety]
