And Helena Bonham Carter?...

We all know that Johnny Depp is a frequent Tim Burton collaborator, and word of mouth indicates that he will be in Alice in Wonderland.

But what about Helena Bonham Carter, Burton's equally abundant actress and the mother of his two children? Perhaps it's a given, but some intriguing information has come up.

Jonathan Lynn, director of the forthcoming film Wild Target, stated that Helena Bonham Carter will not be in his next film, as the shooting schedule clashed with Alice in Wonderland.

So Bonham Carter will most likely be in Alice. Now the question is: Who will she play?

The Queen.
No doubt.

I know for a fact that both her and Depp will be in the film, because day before yesterday they were casting their stand-ins for the film here in LA. (Sadly, I'm too tall =( ) I don't know what characters they're playing, but for Depp's stand-in they said it would be motion-capture (hmm)

I hope it's The Queen!

Yes! Helena would be great for the queen, but I oentimes feel that she needs to play the duchess, in fact, I am hoping that burton adds in the neglected characters from the disney films such as the Mock Turtle and the Gryphon. (Ian McKellan and Eddie Izzard! *tee hee*)

Bonham Carter will play the Red Queen (Queen of Hearts) and Depp will be the Mat Hatter, naturally. Anne Hathaway is slotted to play the White Queen, so perhaps we will see more "neglected" characters from the original novel..?

Definetly the Red Queen. Though I'm not sure if that's the same as the Queen of Hearts....
