Variety reportssacha-baron-cohen-alice-in-wonderland-2-sequel that Baron Cohen is in early talks for Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass.  Details on both the plot and the nature of Baron Cohen’s role are being kept quiet, but The Wrap reports that he may play a villain named Time.  If a deal goes through, it would mark a reteam of Baron Cohen and Depp, who previously starred together in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.  Baron Cohen is currently developing The Lesbian at Paramount as producer and star.

New of Willis joining Vice in the lead role comes via Heat Vision.  The picture is described as “having a Westworld-meets-Grand Theft Auto vibe.  Set in the future, the story takes place on a resort staffed by life-like synthetic beings where the rich live out their darkest fantasies.  Since the androids’ memories reset each night, the resort has an “anything goes” policy, until one female staffer (Childers), suffers a glitch that brings all her memories  back, causing her to vow revenge.  Willis will play the owner of the resort.

As for Inconceivable, Lohan will star in the lead as “Katie, a young woman on a journey to reclaim something that she’s lost.”  More casting news on the Emmett / Furla / Oasis Films production is expected to be announced later this month.
