It’s no surprise that after the lackluster performance of Disney’s The Lone Ranger, star Johnny Depp is reported as being in final talks for a sequel to the studio’s highly lucrative Alice in Wonderland.  Depp starred as the Mad Hatter in the original picture which grossed over a billion dollars worldwide.  Director James Bobin (The Muppets) steps in for Tim Burton this time around.  Deadline also reports that the sequel is part of a relatively new multi-year deal between Depp and Disney that will allow him to produce movies at the studio.  Depp was in the news earlier this week when it was announced that he’d play the title role in Lionsgate’s Mortdecai.  He hopes to fit that particular film in between his roles in the Disney productions Into the Woods and Pirates of the Caribbean 5.
