Mia Wasikowska Set for "Alice"

After being in talks with Disney, it appears that 18-year-old Mia Wasikowska is officially set to play Alice in the upcoming Alice in Wonderland.

"I'm so so excited. The book's really intrigued me when I was little and I've always loved the story," she said.

The young actress also expressed enthusiasm for being able to work with director Tim Burton. She stated that she admired his films. "I really love Edward Scissorhands and Big Fish," she said.

Rumors are still abound online claiming that Johnny Depp will be the Mad Hatter. But Wasikowska said that, at the moment, she is the only person who has officially been cast.

Filming begins next month.

I think this girl that starred in "Sex and the USA", which premiered at Deauville last weekend, would be a better Alice, but what do I know?
