Johnny Depp will pull out a favorite hat from his wild-and-crazy chapeau collection and return as The Mad Hatter in Disney’s Alice in Wonderland 2. Linda Woolverton, who wrote the 2010 Alice, is scripting the sequel, which may be called Through the Looking Glass. James Bobin, who has done Disney proud helming their Muppets franchise reboot (The Muppets, Muppets Most Wanted), will direct, taking the baton from Tim Burton. Alice in Wonderland won two Oscars (costume design and art direction) and broke the $1 billion barrier at the box office during its theatrical run in 2010.
